A view across Manchester

Manchester: A graphene city

The University of Manchester is the home of graphene, a material that has captured the imagination of the world.

Critical mass

Graphene@Manchester is an ongoing programme of activity to ensure that Manchester and the UK play a leading international role in developing the revolutionary potential of graphene.

We are creating a critical mass of graphene expertise made up of scientists, manufacturers, engineers, innovators, investors and industrialists to build a thriving knowledge-based economy.

At the heart of our vision are the National Graphene Institute and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre, multi-million pound facilities with a commitment to fostering strong industry-academic collaborations.
