About ECFP

The Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership’s (ECFP) mission is to advance and innovate complex fluid design and processes through scientific excellence. We specialise in understanding the interactions between components in soft materials and complex fluids and how they influence product behaviour. Through this understanding, we help companies optimise product performance, solve manufacturing challenges, and switch to more sustainable resources and efficient processes. 

ECFP was founded in 2012 by academics from complex fluid research and since then, we have helped companies from all sectors relevant to formulation science, from multinational scale to start-ups. We create and deliver bespoke projects tailored to company needs and our world-leading academic researchers and excellent facilities are key to our success in solving problems and generating innovative solutions. ECFP is based within the the Institute of Condensed Matter and Complex Systems at The University of Edinburgh.
