The Materials for Extreme Environments (MEE) alliance was founded in 2020 and is led by Professor Kathryn Fairfull-Smith (Queensland University of Technology). MEE brings together key researchers from across the globe to advance fundamental and applied materials research outcomes to provide solutions to our ever changing environment.

The core team includes researchers from Queensland University of Technology, Deakin, Swinburne University of Technology, the University of Queensland and Flinders University.

We partner with leading national and international organisations including CSIRO, the Australian Space Agency, BASF and DSTG.
