Our partnerships

Other partnerships

Internationally engaged

We have formal Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with the Australian National Fabrication Facility and the Centre for Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology in Australia and in 2016 signed an MoU with the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan.

We have several other MoUs in the pipeline. All MacDiarmid Institute researchers have strong and ongoing collaborations with international partners, including with members of our International Science Advisory Board, many of whom are based at Ivy League universities and top research colleges and institutions around the world.

Sponsorship and support

Along with our many current partnerships and community relationships, we are proud to have supported the following organisations:
