Set to open its doors next year the new £60m Centre will accelerate the commercial pace of graphene and two-dimensional materials in Manchester.
Developing the GEIC
The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre Industry Advisory Panel has been set-up to guide the early stage planning for The University of Manchester's second graphene facility.
A broad range of industrial partners are supporting the design and implementation of the GEIC and its business model.
I was very impressed by the scale and vision of what Manchester is trying to achieve. The key for companies like BAE Systems, who will be long-term users of graphene, is the capability to move quickly and the GEIC will allow the University to do that.
