About this event

The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC), housed in the Masdar Building is the University’s second world-class graphene centre, creating a unique pipeline of capability to fast-track graphene’s commercial potential. The GEIC is critical in the development of commercial applications and in maintaining the UK’s continued growth in graphene and related 2D materials. Together, the National Graphene Institute (NGI) and GEIC provide an unrivalled hub of graphene expertise and capabilities. The two facilities demonstrate Manchester’s position as the globally leading knowledge-base in graphene research and commercialisation.

The foundations for a productive commercial infrastructure have been created here in Manchester and the wider region. What we need for graphene’s commercial benefits to come to fruition is a thriving, functioning ecosystem. The University’s vision to create a Graphene City® goes beyond physical buildings; we are creating a critical mass of scientists, engineers, industrialists, innovators, entrepreneurs, supply chain and manufacturers.

Manchester was the world’s first modern industrial city; now we want to establish a Graphene City®.

Organised by ICE Manchester branch.
