Graphene Flagship doubles in size

Coupled with the Graphene Week 2014, the Graphene Flagship announced it will increase (link to press release) with 66 new partners (linked to the partners list) invited to join the consortium as a result of a €9 million competitive call.

“It is encouraging to see strong groups with expertise outside the usual graphene science joining the Graphene Flagship”, says Konstantin Novoselov.

Graphene Connect brings together academia and industry

“This workshop is important as it brings together academia and industrial representatives who are working on or are interested in graphene. We hope this will result in new collaborative ventures and provide greater insight into applications where the unique properties of graphene can really make a difference,” says Herre van der Zant, member of the Graphene Week Programme Committee and leader of Work Package 7 – Sensors.
