Materials Research Exchange (MRE) 2022

Researchers and staff from CFPR were delighted to be involved with the recent Materials Research Exchange (MRE) 2022 event in October this year.

The event was organised and run by Innovate UK, it was held at the Business Design Centre in London and was aimed at new insights about materials research and innovations that are taking place to help the UK.

A wide range of seminars were delivered on a range of cutting-edge areas such as materials for Net Zero, including materials for the production, transportation and storage of hydrogen and the use of hydrogen in low carbon production of materials, the scale up of graphene and metamaterials for industrial applications. As well as sessions on technology transfer from UK’s world class research base, with a focus on high performance, net zero materials required by key sectors such as transport, medical, construction, packaging, clothing and other wearables. The event was designed to enable closer collaboration between industry and the materials research and innovation community.

Over 1000 delegates attended the two-day event, allowing academics to have the opportunity to network with other experts in different material disciplines, and allowing international delegates to have the opportunity to view the UK’s world-leading capability in new materials development and meet with potential collaborators.

CFPR had a stand at the event which attracted a lot of interest from both business and academic sectors, of particular interest was our research around Graphene and Ceramics. It was a great opportunity for CFPR to showcase our research areas, and talk to many organisations who were interested in or wanted to know more about the research themes we cover, and to discuss future collaboration possibilities.

If you would like to find out more about the research areas CFPR is currently working on within the Graphene or Ceramics sectors, you can contact us at or call us on 0117 328 5864.
