A majority stake in Cambridge Graphene, a spin-out company from the University of Cambridge, has been acquired by UK-based firm Versarien.
Versarien, who also own 2-DTech, a Manchester graphene spin-out, want "to be the centre of commercial development of graphene in UK".
Cambridge Graphene develops inks based on graphene and related materials using processes developed at the Cambridge Graphene Centre. The spin-out company has commercialised graphene inks for novel technology applications.
Prof Andrea Ferrari, Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre, said:
“The ultimate goal of the Cambridge Graphene Centre is to help transition graphene and related materials from the lab to the factory floor. This investment shows that we are on the right path.”
