Work with us

We’re always happy to hear from businesses or academics interested in potential research or commercial projects.

We provide state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and high-quality research environments for our academic and industry partners.

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs)

Access our expertise through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership: a collaborative project between a business and the University of Exeter, part-funded by the Government.

A KTP is facilitated by a high-calibre graduate who will spend time in our labs and your business to integrate graphene in a product or develop a solution for you.

Collaborative projects

Partner with us on a research and development project to develop or enhance a product, or access external funds for R&D. Read more about Collaborative R&D or watch our GraphExeter video.

For more information or to discuss a potential project, please contact Rebecca Adams, Senior Impact and Partnership Development Manager

Use our nanofabrication facilities

Our facilities can be used for a range of applications, including:

  • optical lithography 
  • etching, dicing and deposition
  • measuring and profiling samples
  • electrical, magnetic and optical measurements of nanostructures
  • storage of liquid helium and liquid nitrogen
