In response to many requests for support on specific aspects of materials education, the Centre established a number of Thematic Groups, each focusing on a particular educational theme within a continual cycle of educational practice, and each led by an expert in that field. The aim of each group has been to form a focal point for discussion and the sharing of knowledge about that topic. Details of the activities and outputs of each Thematic Group are available below:
