Materials science a strong research area at Uppsala University

Materials science is an exciting and vibrant interdisciplinary research area at Uppsala University, featuring highly profiled and innovative research groups as well as state-of-the art research facilities. The competences and infrastructures available within areas such as materials synthesis and design; surface modification; materials production; and characterisation, are important for meeting the societal challenges of the future. Some examples of key research application areas include development of new solar cells, new materials for batteries, hydrogen in materials and sustainable energy storage, as well as nanomaterials and biocompatible materials for implants and drug delivery. In addition, new production methods, such as additive manufacturing/3d-printing, is a strategic area within materials science.

We welcome industrial challenges from all areas connected to materials science and we will do our best to find the right expertise to connect you with and to facilitate new research collaborations.

Helena Bysell, Collaboration Manager at Innovation Partnership Office

Your question is the starting point for discussion

AIMday is not an academic conference in the traditional sense. Instead, questions from companies and organisations are at the very core of the AIMday format. Your challenges, formulated as one or more questions, set the agenda for face-to-face discussions with academics. All in all – you submit the questions you want to discuss with experts in the field.
