Organic Materials Innovation Centre

The Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC) was one of five University Innovation Centres established by the UK government in late 2002. It received initial funding of £4.3m over five years from the Department of Trade and Industry.

OMIC helps companies innovate and grow through access to leading edge science in organic materials. These materials include bulk, specialty and engineering polymers, oligomers, surfactants, lubricating oils and active ingredients for use in applications as diverse as coatings, electronics, biomaterials, packaging, home and personal care.

Today, OMIC forms one of the core players in the Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry (KCMC), which draws on scientific and technical expertise from across the region to provide support for industry.
