Henry Royce Institute

The Henry Royce Institute is the UK’s home of advanced materials research and innovation, bringing together world-leading academics from across the UK and working closely with industry to ensure commercialisation of fundamental research.

It will address the gap in the UK innovation chain, allowing the iterative design of advanced materials for various applications, at speed and reasonable cost, reducing the timescale to translate discoveries into applications and products, generating UK economic growth.

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is working with Henry Royce Institute partners as the delivery partner for the UK government’s investment of £235 million, which is part of the strategy to boost economic growth in the north of England and balance the UK economy.

The institute will have its hub at The University of Manchester, with spokes at the founding partners, comprising the universities of Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College London, as well as the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and the National Nuclear Laboratory.
