For Rs 86.41 crore, India's first graphene innovation center would be constructed in Thrissur.

The Digital University Kerala (DUK) and the Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET) in Thrissur will establish India's first graphene innovation center for Rs 86.41 crore in Kerala. This will be the country's first graphene Research and Development (R&D) incubation facility. Tata Steel Limited might be the center's industrial member.

The project has been authorized by the Government of India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. The initiative, which will be carried out with the cooperation of the Kerala government, is intended to boost the state's growth in the knowledge industry sector.

Graphene is well-known for its exceptional electrical and electronic capabilities, and a new study suggests that it might replace indium, lowering the cost of OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screens in smartphones. Graphene is transparent and lightweight, with strong chemical stability, high electrical conductivity, and a vast surface area.
