From Brunel to Banksy, the UK city of Bristol has a history of people unafraid to think big while doing things on their own terms. One place that typifies Bristol’s free-spirited attitude is the Centre for Print Research (CFPR) at the University of the West of England.
At the CFPR, scientists and artists work side-by-side to reimagine old print and manufacturing techniques for modern applications, such as anti-forgery labelling and aircraft components. CFPR researchers are also working at the vanguard of wearable electronics, designing e-textiles using graphene and other 2D materials for health and lifestyle applications.
