Who We Are

The Advanced Materials Research Center (AMRC) is committed to innovation in material science and to shaping metals and composites of the future. Backed by a well-funded team of internationally recognized scientists, the Center is dedicated to breakthrough developments in smart materials to help forge a new generation of advanced materials with extraordinary properties. The wide applicability of AMRC’s work means it will find practical uses in industries and scientific disciplines far beyond our core focus areas.

AMRC is part of the Technology Innovation Institute (TII), a global scientific research center attracting the world’s foremost scientists and researchers. TII leads worldwide advances in artificial intelligence, autonomous robotics, quantum computing, cryptography, and quantum communications, directed energy, secure communication, smart devices, advanced materials, and propulsion and space technologies, and biotechnology fields.

TII belongs to the Abu Dhabi Government's Advanced Technology Research Council (ATRC), which oversees the technology research in the emirate.

What We Do

We conduct applied research on metals and composites, including meta, nano, smart, self-healing, energy absorbing, and additive manufacturing materials. In doing so, we bring these advanced materials to a stage where they are ready for implementation by industry. 

We also support other TII research centers by developing the advanced materials they need to pursue their projects.
