Welcome to the Graphene Special Interest Group (SIG)

The Graphene SIG has been established to provide:  

  • Leadership and a focal point for the exploitation of graphene by UK industry
  • A concerted resource to help connect and align the developing UK graphene value chain

Launched  in January 2014, the Graphene SIG will evolve to bring together participants in a range of graphene based activities. The Graphene SIG will organise events and activities which aim to build an active community to help drive graphene innovation in the UK.
