What are the benefits with graphene for your company? What are your company’s R&D challenges? Which products could emerge from using graphene?

These are some of the questions that we will cover together with leading experts from e.g. AstraZeneca, Glaxo Smith Kline and Pixium Vision. The workshop will be tailored based on your needs, covering opportunities and challenges in:

​Day one
1. Target markers and Sensitivity of Biosensors
2. Graphene in Flexible/Wearable Sensors
3. Long-term/Chronic biocompatibility
​Day two
1. Recording/Stimulation/Closed Loop Technologies
2. Device Energy/Power Specifications
3. Therapeutic Functionality 

The programme includes popular presentation (general overview) on state-of-the art research by the work package leaders presenting the plan for the coming years, industry perspectives by industry representatives and investors. Building on the presentations, there will be moderated group discussions with the possibility of representatives across industry sectors to interact with each other as well as with researchers.

The aim is to strengthen collaboration throughout the value chain from researchers, to component, system producers and end-users.
