The Graphene Engineering and Innovation Centre (GEIC) opens to accelerate the commercialization of graphene materials

Posted By Terrance Barkan, Friday, December 14, 2018

 

 

The Graphene Engineering and Innovation Centre (GEIC) is a £60 million facility that specialises in the development and scale-up of graphene and other 2D materials for industrial purposes.

 

As the home of industry-led innovation with graphene and 2D materials at the University of Manchester, work at the GEIC is focused around creating, testing and optimisining new concepts for delivering products to market as well as the processes needed to scale up production and build and maintain a supply chain.

 

Working with the National Graphene Institute, the GEIC complements their research with work in six key areas of focus:

  • Composites
  • Energy
  • Membranes
  • Inks, formulations and coatings
  • Graphene production and pilot facility
  • Measurements and characterisation 

Why is this important?

 

The GEIC facility makes industry standard equipment available for rapid prototyping and testing, allowing companies (especially those that do not have multi-million dollar R&D facilities) to develop cutting edge graphene enhanced products with less risk and on an accelerated schedule. 

 

Equally important, the GEIC facility is housed on the Univeristy of Manchester's campus, providing easy access to the world's leading graphene research team of PhD's and experts. 

 

Working with The Graphene Council and the GEIC

 

The Graphene Council is an Affiliate Member of the GEIC and has UK based colleagues that can help you take your graphene innovation ideas from concept to prototype on an accelerated pace. Getting to market faster saves you time and money while providing a competitive advantage.

 

Using our extensive knowledge and graphene market insights, we can help you to craft a graphene innovation strategy. The Graphene Council can then help you realize this strategy through the use of development facilities, like the GEIC, and by leveraging our close relationships with the leading graphene producers around the world.
