The MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology

The challenges facing New Zealand and the world today – clean water, renewable energy, climate change – will be solved by tomorrow’s scientists and engineers, sitting in our classrooms right now, ready to be inspired. They’ll need new materials and the new technology based on those materials that hasn’t been discovered yet. That’s what the MacDiarmid Institute does. We’re New Zealand’s best scientists, engineers, and educators unified for a common goal – to make, understand, and use new materials to improve people’s lives.
