Case studies

Our research partners range from small, dynamic start-ups through to global technology leaders such as Cogent Power, Cristal, Great Cell Solar and Croda.

What unites them all is a desire to work with researchers who understand their problems and drivers, and who share their ambition to develop advanced materials that will transform their business and create sustainable growth.

CEEMs’ collaborative research capabilities are open to all. You can take part in original research with CEEM in a range of ways, from commissioning specific projects in one of our core research strengths, to joining an international consortium or other collaborative research projects.
