Eli and Britt Harari Enterprise Award

This annual award aims to help research staff and students at The University of Manchester establish new companies involving graphene or other 2D materials.

The competition is closed for applications

The award acts as seed funding to enable winning innovators to take the first steps towards turning their novel idea into a reality. It recognises the impact that high-level, flexible, early-stage financial support has in the successful development of a business.

Prizes of £50,000 and £20,000 will be awarded to the individuals or teams who can best demonstrate how their technology relating to graphene and other 2D materials can be applied to a viable commercial opportunity.


Applications are welcomed from students, postdoctoral researchers and recent graduates of The University of Manchester.

This competition 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.
