Research activities of IMDEA Materials Institute are organised within five research programmes devoted to:
- Advanced Materials for Multifunctional Applications
- The Next Generation of Composite Materials
- Alloy Design, Processing and Development
- Integrated Computational Materials Engineering
- Multiscale Characterization of Materials and Processes
These programmes are focused on the development of advanced materials mainly in the sectors of transport, energy, information technology and manufacturing as well as on the exploration of emerging materials and processes for sustainable development.
Each research programme combines the expertise of different research groups (processing, characterization and simulation) leading to a multidisciplinary effort to achieve results beyond the state-of-the-art. Moreover, knowledge transfer between different research programmes is promoted by the fact that different research groups are often involved in two or more of them.
Driven by the talent of the researchers, research programmes combine cutting-edge fundamental oriented research in topics at the frontiers of knowledge with applied research encompassing the midterm interest of our industrial partners to provide long-term technological leadership.
