Nobel Laureate Receives £4 Million Grant for 2D Materials Research

University of Manchester Nobel laureate Sir Kostya Novoselov has been awarded a £4m grant to research 2D materials. The grant will allow a team of UK academics, led by Sir Kostya, to further investigate the properties of 2D materials, which could pave the way for designer materials to meet the demands of industry, and incorporate graphene in various commercial applications.

The funding has been awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council as part of £21 million worth of grants aimed at addressing some of the major challenges facing science and engineering.
