As part of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) the University is hosting an industry day at the National Graphene Institute (NGI) for businesses to discover the intensifying opportunities within graphene and related 2D materials.
Manchester is a city of technology and resource, knowledge and creativity. The University of Manchester is the home of graphene research and the centre of emerging graphene applications in collaboration with industry.
The £61m NGI is the first phase of an ambitious infrastructure and knowledge building programme to create a Graphene City within Manchester. The NGI currently has over 45 industrial partners working alongside over 230 academics. Construction is also underway on the £60m Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre to accelerate industry led commercialisation of graphene-related technologies.
Manchester and the NGI’s 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.
The programme comprises:
Introduction and overview of graphene and the NGI: James Baker
Technical aspect of graphene: Paul Wiper
Session One: 10am – 12pm
Session Two: 2pm – 4pm
