A role with MAPP means being part of a large, growing and well-networked multidisciplinary team working with leading universities, industry partners and High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) centres.

MAPP’s cohort of researchers works together to solve some of the fundamental challenges limiting the uptake of a vital class of new and emerging technologies in ceramics, metals and polymers.

The hub’s collaborative approach draws in expertise from materials science, automatic control and systems engineering, mechanical engineering, the Henry Royce Institute, the UK's national synchrotron - the Diamond Light Source and our close working relationships with industry partners including GKN, Renishaw and Rolls-Royce.

MAPP is recoupling manufacturing process development with the underpinning materials science, with a research programme spanning the fundamentals of powder materials, advanced in-situ process monitoring and characterisation, and new approaches to modelling and control.
