The Henry Royce Institute, known as Royce, is the UK’s national institute for advanced materials science research and innovation.
Royce@Cambridge is one of Royce’s nine partners, funded by the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which is part of UK Research & Innovation (UKRI).
Based at the Maxwell Centre, Royce @Cambridge is the centrepiece for industrial engagement with the scientists and engineers working across the materials sciences on the West Cambridge Science and Technology Campus.
Through an initial £12M capital investment in research facilities, we support research and innovation through an inter-departmental network of 18 open access deposition, fabrication and characterisation facilities. Our focus is on supporting the development of materials for energy efficient devices as part of the Royce AtomsToDevices research theme.
We also support research in the Royce Institute Research Areas of 2D Materials, Biomaterials and Bioelectronics development and Advanced Metals Processing. Royce@Cambridge hosts a national technology platform which includes the Physical Vapour Deposition and Characterisation Facility.
There are funding opportunities for students, researchers and SMEs to access Royce equipment at the University of Cambridge.
