Research Impact

Research Highlights

More than 20 research groups work on a wide range of topics within materials science and collaborate closely with other institutions and scientific disciplines.

Spinout Companies

Numerous academic staff are actively commercializing their research through spinout companies setup through Oxford University Innovation.

Impact Case Studies

Examples of how research from the Department has contributed to the wider economy through long term research and short term contract materials analysis work.

Our impact is based on research that is interdisciplinary and rooted in the concept of translating fundamental scientific understanding to practical deployment. The development of impact is defined as a central mission for all researchers, and enabled by dedicating infrastructure, resources and facilities to transfer science to practice, encouraging innovative partnerships with industry and seeking to influence policy in the UK and internationally.
