Our work confronts the challenges of advanced materials science head-on. We combine the expertise of each ICAM partner, sharing knowledge to solve issues faced by materials operating in the oil and gas sector. Ultimately our work results in safer, smarter materials that are able to address specific problems and operate in increasingly intense environments.
