What is the MacDiarmid Institute?
The MacDiarmid Institute is New Zealand's premier research organisation concerned with high quality research in Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. We bring together and equip New Zealand’s leading researchers in nanotechnology and materials science. Our culture of collaboration and excellence enables scientists to work together across disciplines at the highest level, and remain connected internationally.
What happens to our research?
The MacDiarmid Institute's researchers have had some notable successes in commercialising their research, including Magritek and Anzode, and has provided valuable support to a number of emerging companies, such as Izon and Aeroqual. A significant number of new commercialisation projects are underway (e.g. Synthodics), or are emerging. Researchers like Simon Hall, David Williams and Bob Buckley have been involved in commercializing research for more than 20 years.
