European City of Science 2016

A city built on science and industry

What is Graphene City?

Manchester is the home of graphene, where Rutherford split the atom and where Turing created the first programmable computer. It is a city which has grown from world-changing scientific creativity and discovery.

2016 sees Manchester celebrate its scientific pedigree as the European City of Science and the host of the EuroScience Open Forum 2016.
