Chemical Materials Discovery

The Materials Computational Discovery Centre (MCDC) at the University of Liverpool combines high performance computing and materials science and forms part of the Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials and Innovation.

The MCDC integrates high performance computing and materials science and fosters close collaboration between academia and industry on the discovery of new materials and their analysis.

The centre allows some of the most important sectors of the economy to benefit from innovations in this area.

The facilities enable the discovery and evaluation of new materials for a wide range of industrial sectors, from nanofabrication to nuclear engineering and in the future, will involve, for example, engineers and scientists working together to tailor novel materials to create sustainable structures for the power and transport industries.

The Hartree Centre, which is part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council and develops software to model, simulate and visualise the research and development of products, is a partner in the MCDC, providing capability in high performance computing.
