The University’s world-class, multi-million-pound engineering centre provides industry-led development in graphene applications, bringing real-world products to market.
The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) specialises in the rapid development and scale-up of graphene and other 2D materials applications.
The GEIC will focus on seven application areas to rapidly accelerate the development and commercialisation of new graphene technologies.
- Inks, Formulations and Coatings
- Graphene production
- Construction materials
- Measurements and characterisation
The GEIC is an industry-led innovation centre designed to collaborate with industry partners to create, test and optimise new concepts for delivery to market, along with the processes required for scale-up and supply chain integration.
With a dedicated team of experienced Application Managers, Application Specialists, Technicians and the Business Engagement team, the GEIC can react as quickly as the industry requires. The two-tier membership model allows us to work on short feasibility projects through a long-term strategic partnership with multiple projects in different application areas.
The National Graphene Institute and Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre provide an unrivalled critical mass of graphene expertise and infrastructure. The two facilities reinforce Manchester’s position as a globally leading knowledge base in graphene research and commercialisation.
