On Saturday, 16 and Sunday, 17 November 2019, the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) opens its doors for the world’s first Graphene Hackathon.

This free event aim is to invite fresh perspectives into the graphene community and make graphene accessible to all those inspired by its potential. Supported by industry sponsors including Google, Mewburn Ellis and Versarien, participants will compete for cash prizes at the purpose-built facility.

The Rules
  • The event is open to University of Manchester students, staff and external applicants (over the age of 18).
  • Teams should consist of 4-6 people, although solo applicants are also welcome.
  • Participation is free.
  • Register your participation and sign up to the mailing list.
  • Formal applications will open later in the year, and there will be an opportunity to join teams at the Hackathon preparation event also later in the year.

Form teams of 4-6 people and combine interdisciplinary expertise to produce an innovative commercial product using graphene. Fast track them to product design with help from specialised workshops run by experts.


The future is now in 2019 — use the world-class facilities in the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) to make a prototype worthy of investment.


Showcase your product in front of established judges for the chance to win investment and cash prizes.
