Materials [Metallic and Alloys] Innovation Centre, set up by The University of Leicester at the end of 2016.
The Materials (Metallic and Alloys) Innovation Centre (MatIC) is a long term strategic partnership between TWI and The University of Leicester, one of the world’s top universities, focusing on materials characterisation and novel materials development.
MatIC has created a shared research and technology capability specialising in small and full-scale materials testing in harsh environments.
MatIC’s aim is to be a world-leading metal research centre, specialising in new experimental techniques and models to understand the fundamental mechanisms underlying cracking and defect formation during welding, casting and metal 3D printing.
