The “Ultrawire” project aims at producing a material that conducts electricity better than any known electrical conductor
“We are exploiting forefront European carbon manufacturing technology and transferring exciting new materials into industry” says Dr. Krzysztof Koziol, Head of the Electric Carbon Nanomaterials Research Group in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. “The EC’s FP7 funding recognises the power of transferring technology from Europe’s leading research institutions into companies responsible for producing and using millions of tonnes of copper each year.”
Dr. Koziol is the project coordinator and the leading contact with the EC for the Ultrawire project.
