Greater Manchester SMEs: Engage with Graphene

Time: 08:00 - 10:30

Venue: GEIC, Masdar Building, Sackville Street, Manchester, M1 3BB

Are you a Greater Manchester based SME who:

  • wants to find out more about the 2D material graphene?
  • wishes to explore the possibilities of a new innovative venture?
  • is interested in exploring how graphene and 2D materials can be used in your processes and products?

Then you are invited to register your interest in a free place at our SME breakfast session at the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) in Manchester, on Wednesday 1st May.

Manchester is the home of graphene, a 2D form of carbon that is many times stronger than steel yet incredibly lightweight and flexible, electrically and thermally conductive but also transparent, and one million times thinner than the diameter of a single human hair. Manchester is where this advanced material was first isolated and its diverse characteristics of interest identified.

The potential uses of graphene and 2D materials cover several sectors and can be implemented into a wide range of applications including composites, energy, inks, coatings, membranes, and production.

So what will I do at the GEIC?

The morning introductory breakfast event will cover:

  • an introduction to Graphene@Manchester, and the ‘Bridging the Gap’ SME project and how it could benefit you
  • exploring our state-of-the-art laboratories with our specialist teams

This workshop will run from 08:00 to 10:30, and will include breakfast and refreshments.
