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
center for Rs 86.41 crore in Kerala. This will be the country's first graphene
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
The initiative, which will be carried out with the cooperation of the
is intended to boost the state's growth in the knowledge
is well-known for its exceptional electrical and electronic capabilities
, and a new study suggests that it might replace indium, lowering the cost of
