Coming in late 2022.
Our 17,000 square-foot facility in Portsmouth, Rhode Island will offer neutral lab and equipment space for industry, government, and academic partners to collaboratively problem-solve, develop concepts, build and test prototypes, model concepts, and present solutions.
Companies will be able to work with cross-functional teams to develop new ideas, and large entities can sponsor projects that leverage the expertise of small companies, universities and others. This site will help also support and accelerate the growth of three key industries in the state of Rhode Island and its surrounding region—composites, textiles and undersea technology—and is expected to create 400 high-value Rhode Island jobs.
The facility will also offer presentation and training facilities, temporary office and workspaces, event hosting, and trainings for technology solution providers.
“This is another positive step toward developing a strong, sustainable technological ecosystem here in Rhode Island. This [Center] will help 401 Tech Bridge and its partners build on their success and attract more opportunities for entrepreneurship, investment, and innovation.”
United Kingdom-based, Graphene Composites has grown to become a world leader in nano materials engineering. Serving healthcare, Defense and public safety, composites, and energy, the team applies its nanotechnology expertise to a wide range of applications and technical challenges.
Learn how 401 Tech Bridge helped GC expand operations to Rhode Island, and made commercialization of Graphene Composites’ new “GC Ink” technology attainable right here in RI. GC is also looking forward to being one of the first companies to take advantage of the 401 Tech Bridge Advanced Materials & Technology Center.
