The IMDEA Materials Institute is part of the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies (IMDEA) network, a new institutional framework created to foster social and economic sustainable growth in the region of Madrid by promoting the generation of scientific knowledge and technological innovation in a number of strategic areas (water, food, energy, materials, nanoscience, networks and software).
We are a non-profit organisation (foundation) with the Mission of doing research of excellence in material science, contributing to tackle the challenges of society and fostering the sustainable development of the region of Madrid.
Our Vision for the future is that IMDEA Materials becomes a leading research institute, internationally recognized for its excellence in material science and its contributions to the transformation of society.
This is sustained on our three main pillars:
excellence in materials science and engineering research
attraction of talented researchers from all over the world to work in Madrid in an international and interdisciplinary environment
technology transfer to industry to increase competitiveness and maintain technological leadership
The IMDEA Materials Institute has an stablished international reputation in the areas of design, processing, characterization, modelling and simulation of advanced materials for applications in different industrial sectors with particular emphasis in transport and energy.
The IMDEA Materials Institute combines oriented fundamental research with applied research addressing the scientific and technological challenges that drive innovation in materials science and engineering. This combination provides the institute the ability to address ambitious technological challenges in collaboration with companies to create value in their products and processes.
An international reference in Materials Science and Engineering
Established in 2007, the IMDEA Materials Institute is commited to attracting talent from all over the world to work in an international and multidisciplinary environment.
The highly collaborative environment at the Institute fosters the careers of our alumni, giving them the opportunity to obtain positions in top international research and academic institutions or hold senior positions in industry.
The institute holds the European Commission’s ‘HR Excellence in research’ award since October 2015, which recognises institutions that are committed to good HR practices and researchers development, aligned with the The European Charter & Code for Researchers.
IMDEA Materials Institute has state-of-the-art laboratories to manufacture, characterise and simulate advanced materials and nanomaterials, including their integration in lab scale prototypes and devices.
