The Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) is a key research strength at the University of Wollongong and is the lead node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and lead node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) - Materials node.

Professor Gordon Wallace and his team at IPRI are recognised internationally as world leaders in the development of 'intelligent' materials and nanotechnology.  

IPRI is renowned for expertise in the electrochemistry of organic conductors; especially when those conductors are used in the applications of artificial muscles, photovoltaics, batteries, and biomedical applications.
