About the Graphene Flagship
The Graphene Flagship is the EU’s biggest ever research initiative. With a budget of €1 billion, it represents a new form of joint, coordinated research on an unprecedented scale.
The Graphene Flagship is tasked with bringing together academic and industrial researchers to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in the space of 10 years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities.
Launched in 2013, the Graphene Flagship is, along with the Human Brain Project, the first of the European Commission’s Future and Emerging Technology (FET) Flagships, whose mission is to address the big scientific and technological challenges of the age through long-term, multidisciplinary R&D efforts.
The Graphene Flagship is coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.
