Bristol University is leading the three-year Manufacturing Immortality Project to investigate the manufacture of new materials that can self-heal or regenerate and comprise biological and non-biological parts. The project will initially focus on creating materials for use in inaccessible environments such as deep-sea cables or radioactive sites. Researchers from seven universities and 13 companies are taking part in the project, which could eventually lead to self-healing mobile phone screens or circuit boards in laptops that self-repair after being short-circuited.
