It is ranked fourth in the world, hosts five of the top 100 institutions and has universities which attract at least £95 million per annum of materials research funding.

The UK has become renowned as a world leader in the development of advanced composite materials. These high-performance and light-weight materials are proving vital in helping automotive and aerospace industries deliver much needed savings in running costs and carbon emissions. Increasingly UK advanced composites is being widely used in a range of new fields, from construction to consumer goods and even the medical sector, in artificial joints and ligaments.
