Scientists at The University of Manchester have ‘re-discovered’ a material, which could make the construction of 2D van der Waals heterostructures easier to build.
Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) funding
- £15m - Higher Education Funding Council for England's UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF).
- £30m - Masdar, the Abu Dhabi-based renewable energy company owned by Mubadala.
- £5m - Innovate UK.
- Additional funding from research funds and institutions.
Masdar is pleased to be partnering with The University of Manchester, which has world leading academic and research credentials. With potential applications for graphene across major industries, we are confident that together we can pioneer the use of this ground-breaking material.
