What is MATcelerate ZERO?

A partnership between leading materials research universities and companies
Backed by the Henry Royce Institute – the UK’s National Institute for Advanced Materials
Focused on development and use of new materials to achieve carbon net-zero and enable the energy transition
A vehicle to help enable industry to address the market for climate solutions valued at >$100B in Europe, doubling annually since 2020*

We need to accomplish something gigantic we have never done before, much faster than we have ever done anything similar. To do it, we need lots of breakthroughs in science and engineering.”
