Who we are
The Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMRC) is an emerging centre of global excellence in materials science in the Middle East and North Africa. We attract leading innovators and pioneers regionally and globally.
We are driven by an understanding that the wide applicability of our work means it will find practical uses in industries and scientific disciplines far beyond our core areas of focus.
AMRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a UAE-based research centre that aims to lead global advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography and quantum communications, directed energy, secure communication, smart devices, advanced materials, and propulsion and space technologies.
We belong to the Abu Dhabi Government’s Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees technology research in the emirate.
What we do
We conduct applied research on metals and composites, including meta, nano, smart, self-healing, energy absorbing and additive manufacturing materials. Through this work, we bring these advanced materials to a stage where they are ready for implementation by industry.
We also support other TII research centres by developing the advanced materials they need to pursue their projects.
Our research areas include:
Smart materials and structures
Energy-absorbing materials and structures
At AMRC, we’ve attracted a team of advanced materials experts from across the global. The calibre of our peers is part of what makes AMRC such an exciting research environment.
