Graphene Research, Application Development & Advisory Services 

The Graphene Council is the largest community for graphene professionals, producers, research application developers and end-users in the world. Through our community and strategic partnerships in target industries, we reach more than 25,000 materials scientists and professionals globally. 

No one knows more about the state of graphene commercialization than the Graphene Council's team of expert consultants.

We work with advanced materials R&D teams to help identify the right type of graphene material and commercial grade supplier, from application concept through prototype development and testing. We can even help with the go to market phase through our Verified Graphene Product ™ program. 

Whether you are; a producer looking for new markets, a buyer looking for the best source of graphene, a university tech transfer office looking for commercialization partners, or investors looking to participate in the graphene revolution, you can rely on The Graphene Council to find the right information, solutions and connections.

As an Affiliate Partner with the University of Manchester's Graphene Engineering and Innovation Centre (GEIC) and partnerships with other leading institutions, The Graphene Council has unparalleled access to the best and the brightest in the field of graphene commercialization.
