Graphene discoverer pushes back on govt support of “a Graphene Valley”

The IEEE Spectrum pulls out a great quote from an interview with the co-discoverer of graphene, Sir Andre Geim, on the U.K. government’s push to create a Silicon Valley for graphene in England:

“I’m not interested in going into industry or property development or creating ‘graphene valley’ as the government would like me to. It’s a bit silly for society to throw a little bit of money at something and expect it to change the world. Everything takes time.”
