New University company to develop and commercialise graphene-based products
This week The University of Manchester has launched a new company to develop a range of industrial and consumer products, components and systems based on its broad portfolio of IP relating to graphene and other 2D technologies.
Graphene Enabled Systems Limited, headquartered in the University’s Innovation Centre (UMIC) on Grafton Street in Manchester, is wholly owned by the University and is led by newly appointed CEO, Andrew Wilkinson.
The company’s mission is to create a number stand-alone ‘spin-out’ businesses which will licence the University’s IP for use in specific, well defined applications and markets. Graphene Enabled expects that these ‘spin-out’ businesses will develop products, components and systems for industrial and consumer applications.
