National Graphene Institute – its importance to the region and UK

Organiser: Institute of Economic Development N West/N Wales Branch
Location: Greenheys Building at Manchester Science Park

This free event is your chance to hear all about the new Graphene Institute. From spring 2015 the new £61m research institute into super material graphene will be operating at the University of Manchester. The NGI will be the UK's home of research into the world's thinnest, strongest and most conductive material, providing the opportunity for researchers and industry to work together on a huge variety of potential applications. It is hoped the centre will initially create around 100 jobs, with the long-term expectation of many thousands more in the region & the UK.

Event kindly hosted by Manchester Science Park, who will give an overview of the Science Park prior to the presentation by the NGI Project Manager.

Registration is vital via the organiser, Barbara Mothershaw
