Centres and institutes

As a school we work closely with several interdisciplinary University research institutes and centres.

Other partners

Along with the centres and institutes mentioned above, the School benefits from a number of other important collaborations.

Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC)

The Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) (currently under construction) will fill a critical gap in the ecosystem for graphene and 2D material research, development and application in the UK.

The School will enjoy usage of the facility - the University’s second world-class multi-million pound graphene-focused centre - which will see industry-led development in applications through partnerships with academics.

Find out more about the GEIC on the University’s graphene website.

N8 High Performance Computing (N8 HPC)

N8 HPC offers a high performance computing facility which is shared between the ‘N8’ group of universities.

Manchester: Improving Medicine with Innovation and Technology

The University and Greater Manchester NHS have joined forces to create Manchester: Improving Medicine with Innovation and Technology (MIMIT) - an initiative which facilitates collaborations between clinicians, scientists, engineers and industry to develop innovative technology for patient benefit.

Visit the MIMIT website.

The Diamond Manchester collaboration

Since 2010, the University has enjoyed a collaboration with Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron science facility.

This allows researchers in a wide range of fields to create high-quality 3D images of samples including engineering components, biomaterials, fossils, organic materials and energy devices such as fuel cells.
