"Advanced materials" are purposefully designed materials that show novel or enhanced structural and/or functional properties, such as improved material strength, increased electronic conductivity, anti-infectious properties or biodegradability. These advanced materials are key to society, as they enable new technological innovations and hereby help in solving worldwide challenges.
On Campus Groningen we focus on developing advanced materials within the impact fields of Healthy Ageing, Sustainable Society and Energy. We understand how materials work at the molecular scale and are even able to build a 4-wheel drive nanocar. This in-depth knowledge of materials allows researchers and entrepreneurs to construct new devices and products.
