The University of Manchester is the home of graphene – it is where the one-atom thick material was first isolated.
Today we have an unrivalled breadth of academic expertise and work in collaboration with dozens of partners. By leveraging the research power along with the vast infrastructure we have put in place we can leverage the investment in fundamental science and facilities to collaboratively generate value, IP and skills needed for the development of products and applications.
