The objective is to bring together the UK materials community to discuss, analyse and assimilate opportunities for emerging materials research that will lead to economic and societal benefits. It reflects a growing recognition that highly functional, next generation advanced materials are central to delivering the new technologies needed to meet the challenges we face – from a clean-energy future to health improvements for an aging population.
On 10 June 2021, Royce launched the landscape report; Materials for end-to-end hydrogen: an overview of materials research challenges to be addressed to facilitate increased uptake of hydrogen in energy applications. The report identifies a number of priorities key to supporting materials development, uptake and use. Addressing these challenges will underpin the UK’s wider hydrogen energy sector leadership ambitions by providing potential materials solutions that can support its accelerated deployment. Read more
