The university’s £61m National Graphene Institute will host Graphene Week 2015 between June 22 and 25. The event is expected to attract 600 scientists from around the world.

To coincide with the conference, a total of 120 people per day will be able to engage with academics at industry workshops. 

Graphene - the world’s first 2D material - was isolated at the university in 2004. James Baker, business director for the National Graphene Institute at the University of Manchester said: "Hosting Graphene Week 2015 is a fantastic opportunity for the academic world to gather in the home of graphene.

"These industrial workshops held alongside will provide world leading companies to experience the breadth and infrastructure here at the university and focus on the commercialisation of graphene applications."
