Leadership Team

The UK Metamaterials Network is a joint endeavour between the EPSRC UK Metamaterials Network (EP/V002198/1; led by Prof Alastair Hibbins and Dr Anja Roeding from the University of Exeter) and the KTN Commercialising Metamaterials Innovation Network (led by Dr Steve Morris and Dr Robert Quarshie from the Knowledge Transfer Network).

The Network activities are steered by a leadership team consisting of the respective award leads and representatives from academia and industry who lead on the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Forums.

The SIGs are dedicated to foster relationships around dedicated scientific areas within and across academia, industry, governmental agencies etc, while the Forums provide a platform for cross-SIG interactions for activities targeted at Early Career development, Outreach, Industry push & pull,  and Horizon Scanning (disruptive concepts; blue skies research).
