The University of Manchester launches the 2014 graphene enterprise award competition

The University of Manchester is launching the second Eli and Britt Harari Graphene Enterprise Award competition. This is a £50,000 annual award to help establish new enterprises in graphene at The University of Manchester.

Current students and recent graduates can submit a business plan for the development of a new graphene enterprise. It is open to both individuals and teams (up to six persons, and at least 50% of them must be students and/or graduates).

The competition is co-funded by the North American Foundation for The University of Manchester, through the generous support of one of the University’s former students, Dr Eli Harari, and his wife Britt, and the UK Government’s Higher Education Innovation Fund. The award judging panel will be chaired by Sir Andre Geim.
