Work with us

We want to partner with visionary companies to bring graphene products to the market. Where better to develop future applications than at the home of graphene – The University of Manchester.

In Manchester we have a seamless transition from graphene's fundamental properties to applications.
Professor Rob Dryfe

Our world-class expertise and facilities can help businesses create incredible applications. While some projects will be long-term investments, graphene also has the potential to be implemented immediately. Long-term or short term, it's all possible here in Manchester.
