Graphene Research Centers

The £61m National Graphene Institute (NGI) is the national centre for graphene research in the UK, drawing in specialists from across the globe. It houses state-of-the-art cleanrooms, plus laser, optical, metrology and chemical labs and equipment - the ideal environment for world-class graphene research. The National Graphene Institute is fundamentally important to continue the world-class graphene research started in Manchester where researchers and scientists will be able to collaborate with colleagues from other universities and from some of the world's leading companies, which can only serve to enhance scientific research.
The mission of the Cambridge Graphene Centre is to investigate the science and technology of graphene, carbon allotropes, layered crystals and hybrid nanomaterials. This engineering innovation centre allows our partners to meet, and effectively establish joint industrial-academic activities to promote innovative and adventurous research with an emphasis on applications.

Established in 2010 within the National University of Singapore, the Graphene Research Centre (GRC) was created for the conception, characterization, theoretical modeling, and development of transformative technologies based on two-dimensional crystals, such as graphene.

In 2014, the National Research Foundation (NRF) of Singapore has awarded NUS with a S$50 M grant over 10 years as support for the operational costs of GRC's labs, a micro and nano-fabrication facility and the exploration, synthesis, and development of new devices based on two-dimensional (2D) materials creating a new Centre for Advanced 2D Materials

The mission of the IIT Graphene Labs (G@IIT) is to develop two 2D crystals for exploring fundamental phenomena and for conceiving their application in technological solutions.

The G@IIT strategic plan is part of the ten-year European Fet-flagship initiative Graphene (, and started in 2013, It involves IIT researchers in different fields of activity, such as material production, energy generation and storage, health and biomedical applications, optoelectronics.
