Seeking partners who can help develop or manufacture functionalised materials or structures55 2023. 12. 1.
The UK Company is an established electronic manufacturing organisation highly active in research and
development. They are continually seeking and evaluating next generation materials and
manufacturing approaches that have the potential to improve the functionality of end products.
Stage of Development
The UK Company is searching for partners who can help develop or manufacture functionalised materials or structures. Ideally, the material will be:
• Conductive – high electrical and thermal conductance desirable
• Liquid retaining – to allow liquid to be held within, or on the surface of, the material
• Temperature stable – able to withstand high temperatures and temperature fluctuations
• Non-toxic – the manufacturing process should also not use toxic chemicals
• Self-supporting – imparting structural integrity within the final application
Carbon based materials could deliver many of the desired characteristics and therefore partners who
can help develop such materials are of interest. The Company are also looking for research organisations,
universities or companies with the technology or manufacturing expertise to develop alternative
novel materials and/or composites that possess similar finished form properties. Early stage proof-of
concept technologies to commercialised systems / materials (i.e. TRL 3 – 9) are in scope.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought
The Company is open to discussions with companies developing materials for various applications (e.g. for
air/water purification, sensors, energy storage / fuel cells, flexible electronics etc.) that may have the
relevant manufacturing expertise or technology, with whom they can collaborate.
Ideally, the above properties will be delivered by a single material, but multilayer structures that
combine materials to deliver the necessary functionality are also of interest.

Type and Role of Partner Sought
The Company is actively searching for partners to support their product development efforts. They have
an established customer base and global operations that provide routes to market for both new and
established companies. The company can provide resources to scale up relevant processes and
technologies, including financial investment and joint development.
The Company is interested in potential collaboration with groups looking to commercialise relevant technologies and companies who will consider a variety of collaborations, ranging from trading partnerships, licensing through to joint venture and acquisition.
