Eli and Britt Harari Enterprise Award - Launching March 2019

The Eli and Britt Harari Enterprise Award, in association with Professor Sir Andre Geim, is an annual award to help establish new companies involved with graphene and other 2D materials at The University of Manchester.

About the Eli and Britt Harari Enterprise Award

The Award is open to entries from students, postdoctoral researchers or recent graduates of the University and is supported by Manchester Enterprise Centre.

The prize money acts as seed funding to enable you to take the first steps towards the successful application of the technology described in your submission. It recognises the role that high-level, flexible early-stage financial support can play in the successful development of a business targeting the full commercialisation of a product or technology related to research in graphene or 2D materials.

It is funded by the North American Foundation for The University of Manchester, through the generous support of one of the University’s former students, Dr Eli Harari, and his wife Britt.
