Partnership with Industry

One of the strengths of the Manchester Bioelectronics Network is our collaboration with industry.

Our strong interdisciplinary focus enables our scientists and engineers to drive bioelectronic research through to trials, and develop partnerships with a range of industry sectors. Aided by our superb facilities and infrastructure, our knowledge transfer complements bioelectronics projects at many stages of development.

Our opportunities span:

  • Biotechnology and nanotechnology, with an emphasis of chemical molecular methods
  • Novel conjugated molecules for organic electronic and electrooptical devices
  • Conformal electronics, graphene flexible devices and real-time signal processing
  • Neuromorphic engineering, including the Human Brain project
  • Wearable devices and IoT integration

How to Collaborate with the Bioelectronics Network

Our industry partnerships tackle society’s challenges. You can benefit from our researchers’ work and gain access to our facilities‘ pioneering new technologies.

The new Christabel Pankhurst Institute for Health Technology enables better collaboration between the NHS, researchers and industry through the Manchester Science Park, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Health Innovation Manchester and Manchester University.

At 7,825 square metres and with £13m of state-of-the-art equipment, the National Graphene Institute (NGI), for example, enables academics and their industrial partners to work side-by-side on new and exciting applications. Industry has a vital role to play in how the world’s first 2D material will be utilised.

The Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC) helps companies innovate and grow through access to leading edge science in organic materials.
