Exploring materials structure, properties, processes and advanced characterisation for novel applications
Global population will exceed 9 billion by 2050, impacting quality of life, particularly in developing countries. Resource depletion, climate change, urbanization and healthcare strain will all test future society.
This theme looks to mitigate such issues through materials science and advancement in technology, from novel electronics to efficient transportation, via new medical methods, to environmental challenges and energy technologies.
Optimal properties and performance requires innovative characterization, synthesis and processing, which we will develop as this theme evolves.
