What is the National Graphene Institute?

At 7,825 square metres and with £13m of world-leading equipment, the National Graphene Institute (NGI) enables academics and their industrial partners to work side-by-side on new and exciting applications of graphene and other 2D materials.

The NGI is equipped with 1,500m² of class 100 and 1000 cleanrooms - which have an atmosphere more than a million times purer than air - and the latest technology for nanoscale and characterisation projects.

Along with its sister facility, the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre, the NGI is ideally placed to take the rapidly advancing fundamental science of 2D materials and turn theories into real-world products that will transform the world around us.
