The University of Manchester and The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology declared a collaborative research program covering three innovative projects in graphene and 2D materials: composites, sensors and membranes.

The projects will be led by faculty members from both research institutions, and will respectively explore the development of novel low-density graphene-based foams for various engineering applications, inkjet-printed graphene micro-sensors for energy and defense applications, and graphene-enabled ion exchange membranes for desalination

University of Manchester representatives stated that this partnership with Masdar Institute is crucial to the commercialization of graphene and hopefully will contribute to the introduction of ground-breaking research and development of exciting applications with potential industrial partners.
