Launched in May 2021, the Internationalisation Fund is part of the UK government’s strategic plan to grow its exports by providing additional financial support to SMEs, to help them intensify their international trade and stabilise their business operations.
Dr Olly Morris, Business Developer at Paragraf says: ‘The support of the DIT, including through this award from its Internationalisation Fund, is enabling Paragraf to meet with multiple global supply chains to help accelerate the adoption of our CMOS-compatible graphene electronics by multiple global markets.”
The grant will facilitate Paragraf to attend several international events, such as the International Conference on Magnet Technology. Here, it will be working with those who design, build and test high-field magnets, including for fusion, particle accelerators and medical systems, to better understand what future sensor performance is needed. Paragraf will also attend the Frontiers of Optics conference in Washington, where its team has been invited to present a paper, and SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, to discuss collaborations around graphene modulators, detectors and other photonic devices.
