AMBER is differentiated by its excellence of research. Our scientific programmes are focused in areas where we have critical mass of researchers with international reputations. Our objective is to further grow the scientific reputation of the centre in these key areas with a particular focus on multidisciplinary research.

Our business model is focused on the formation of collaborative research partnerships co-funded by industry and this is our primary vehicle for translating our research and expertise into commercial impact.

Since inception, AMBER has built a partner portfolio of over 50 companies and managed over 100 collaborative projects. Our core value proposition is the international competitiveness of our research, coupled to industry-standard project and relationship management. Our approach has been to focus on sectors strongly aligned to our research strengths, targeting companies with a track record in R&D investment.

AMBER’s work with industry focuses on a wide variety of sectors tackling significant industrial challenges. Our industry partners are diverse, both in terms of sectors and scale, working across materials for novel data processing and memory applications, medical devices and regenerative medicine, energy storage and efficiency, carbon capture and green ICT, and industrial technologies, which includes sustainable materials.

A primary objective of the AMBER centre is to create new knowledge and intellectual property and to successfully transfer that knowledge to industry through licensing agreements, staff exchange and formal transfer of know-how.
