The Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) is a research institute of the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR). IMRE was established in September 1997. Over the past 25 years, IMRE has developed core competencies and interdisciplinary teams for material development from fundamental discoveries to industrial translation. Currently, with over 400 researchers and state-of-the-art research facilities, IMRE conducts world class research in important material and material technology fields, including polymer composites, optical materials, electronic materials, soft materials, structural materials, energy materials, biomaterials, quantum technologies, as well as advanced characterization. As a material-centered research institute in Singapore, IMRE has played important roles in pushing science boundaries and developing cutting-edge technologies. One of the key strategies is to partner international organizations, research institutes, and industry to fulfill its vision to be a leading research institute to accelerate materials research, moving from “Made in Singapore” toward “Created in Singapore”.
