Amanda Lewis and Thanasis Georgiou, recent NOWNANO graduates, are among the founding research scientists of the European headquarters of Bluestone Global Tech in Manchester. Bluestone Global Tech is one of the world’s largest suppliers of graphene. The newly established company, BGT Materials, will collaborate with the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at the University of Manchester and market graphene products to the European region. The knowledge and expertise that Amanda and Thanasis gained during their PhD research at NOWNANO are extremely valued by Bluestone and the company hopes that Graphene NOWNANO will provide a rich pool of candidates for NGI industrial partners to drive commercialisation of graphene in the North West.
