Felice Torrisi, of the Electrical Engineering Division's Nanomaterials and Spectroscopy Group, has been awarded this year's Parmee Prize for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise for his project on graphene printing technology.
Graphene has recently attracted a strong interest among science and technology researchers, industries and policymakers for its unparalleled potential in many technologies including renewable energies, energy storage, flexible electronics and smart textiles. The judges acknowledged that research student Felice's team have made significant progress in one of the key challenges towards real commercialisation of graphene - namely the preparation of highly pure graphene printable inks and printed eletronic devices. This opens up realistic opportunities for economic production of flexible electronics and smart textiles with superior performances, establishing a radical change in the future of electronics.
The Parmee Prize for Entrepreneurship and Enterprise was established four years ago by William Pitt Fellow Richard Parmee to foster entrepreneurship among junior members in Pembroke College. The winner is awarded £1000 along with the opportunity for mentoring and advice from the judges to take the project forward.Parmee Prize 2012 applicants
