The University of Manchester’s recently completed £60m Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) has agreed the first in a series of industrial partnerships to accelerate the commercialisation of graphene in Manchester.

First Graphene Ltd, Haydale Graphene Industries Plc, and Versarien Plc have each agreed to partner with the GEIC in order to exploit opportunities to develop and commercialise graphene products and applications. The GEIC, which is housed in the Masdar building near Manchester city centre, was recently handed over to University ownership from contractors ahead of an official opening later this year.
