Our new name: Cambridge Innovation and Knowledge Centre

Jun 28, 2013   //   by admin   //   News  //  No Comments

As from July 1st 2013, CIKC has changed its full name to Cambridge Innovation and Knowledge Centre – Advanced Manufacturing Technologies for Photonics and Electronics.  This small change was made in the interest of harmonisation with the other more recent IKCs, and the strapline now reflects the fact that our scope is broader than just molecular materials.


Graphene spin-out founded

May 15, 2013   //   by admin   //   News  //  No Comments

Cambridge Graphene Platform (CGP)  will commercialise  graphene inks based on  research work at Cambridge University, including a recent CIKC small grant. The new company has developed a scalable method of ink production from graphene and other layered nanomaterials. These nanomaterials have many interesting properties that make them promising for the printed and large area electronics industry. Layered, or two-dimensional (2D), materials can be conductive, semiconductive or insulating, depending on their types. Read more >>
