Last week, readers were most drawn to news from Morgan Advanced Materials regarding its new research center at Penn State University (Morgan Advanced Materials Launches Carbon Science Centre of Excellence with Penn State): “Morgan Advanced Materials has opened the doors to its new multi-million-dollar Carbon Science Centre of Excellence (CoE) research and development facility at Penn State University. The CoE, which is a collaboration between the manufacturer and the university, will pioneer research into carbon materials and technologies.
“Located at the Penn State Innovation Park, Morgan’s CoE is close to the university staff, students and facilities. Penn State’s reputation as a world-renowned institution for carbon and materials science-focused research, along with its collaborative approach to working with business, were reportedly key when choosing a partner for the project. The partnership brings together resources, experience and knowledge from both sides, with researchers and scientists on site.
“Despite specializing in carbon science materials, the CoE will also be utilized by Morgan’s wider businesses. To date, it has also become the home of research projects for the company’s Thermal Ceramics, Technical Ceramics, and Braze Alloys businesses.”
