2D Materials and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre in Manchester, UK

Zoe Peterkin, AZO Materials

2D materials like graphene are well on their way to revolutionizing many aspects of our lives. With new research being released every day, it is only a matter of time before they are being used across a variety of product ranges and industries.

To delve further into 2D material research and accelerate commercialization, The University of Manchester will be opening a new institute in October 2018. The GEIC (Graphene Engineering Innovation Center) will house further 2D material developments and research for the University.


"We use graphene as the ‘poster child’. That’s where it started and that’s where the interest is… However, there are also other 2D materials that might be better or more complementary depending on the required application.”  James Baker, CEO
