Is the Graphene Study scheduled for European countries only?
Graphene Study is the international school on graphene, organised by the Graphene Flagship. Despite the nature of the Flagship, being the European Commission research and technology project, the school is open for delegates from all over the world. Organisers give no preference to European attendees. The school's registration system is based on the first-come, first-served principle.
What languages are spoken?
The Graphene Study is an international school - nearly every language has been spoken at the conference. However, all conference communications and tutorial programme are in English.
What is included in the delegates fee?
The delegates fees cover costs for tutorial programme as well as daily and social activity packages:
- Accommodation in twin rooms including breakfast
- Full board: coffee breaks, lunches and dinners
- Welcome reception
- Farewell dinner
- Social activities
Which registration category are you in?
The registration system provides the choice between three categories: 'Students and young researchers', 'Senior academic', and 'Industry' – that influence the registration fee rates:
Students and Early Career Researchers: includes Bachelor, MSc and PhD, Postdoctoral.
Senior Academics: Professors, (full, associate and assistant), Principal Investigators (PIs) and staff scientists.
Industry: title comprise both early career and senior researchers from industries, other representatives of companies and commercial organisations.
Who can apply for 'Students Grants'?
Support is available to delegates, currently enrolled or holding early career research positions at one partner of the Graphene Flagship Consortium or Flagship's Associated Members and presenting their research as posters (as first or second authors). Please read the
application requirements closely and follow the
Does the Graphene Study provide any travel funds support?
Travel funds cover costs for lecturers traveling to the conference to present their research hence reducing overall fee rates for delegates.
The Graphene Flagship does not provide support for students traveling to the conferences. These costs have to be managed through other sources.
How do I get an international visa invitation letter?
If you require an invitation letter to enter EU-countries, please register first and request then an invitation letter from the organiser.
Subject: GS Visa Letter Request
The invitation letter will include information about the conference, its dates and place, confirmation of attendance and accommodation. Please note that the invitation letter can only be issued after successful payment for the conference.
Shall your attendance to the Graphene Study fail due to delay or rejection of the Schengen visa the registration fee will be compensated fully or partly following cancellation policy standards.
How is the accommodation organised?
Lecturers and delegates of the Graphene Study will be accommodated at the Hjortviken Conference Hotel. Accommodation is provided in twin rooms and includes access to the gym, sauna and outdoor hot tub. Rooms have a writing desk, television, phone, hairdryer, etc. Breakfast, coffee-breaks, lunches and dinners are also included.

Hjortviken Conference Hotel
Can family members attend the Graphene Study with me?
The Graphene Study is a family friendly conference – spouses and children are welcome to stay in Hjortviken Conference Hotel. However due to the limited number of places each case has to be discussed separately with the organiser. Please contact the registration manager at
What is the scientific scope of the Graphene Study?
Graphene Study promotes knowledge exchange on graphene and related two-dimensional materials research and applications.
Each edition of the Graphene Study addresses a specific range of topics, which reflect the science and technology agenda of the Graphene Flagship - this assignment roughly reflects the focus on electronic and photonic devices and their applications.

How are lectures organised?
We pay a significant attention to the tutorial nature of the Graphene Study. In contrast with invited conference talks, lecturers are kindly requested not to restrict their course to own work but rather to critically present the state of the art of the subject.
Lecturers are asked to provide a list of references they consider essential for the matter of their course. The lectures and list of references will be available online for attendees, registered to the conference.
Delegates are invited to contribute comments to research and tutorial lectures where 10 minutes for discussion are reserved after each lecture.
Is it possible for me, being a young researcher, who has not finished research/wrote any paper about graphene, to attend the Graphene Study?
A publication on graphene is not a criteria for the attendance to the Graphene Study.
The course will introduce students and young researchers to the graphene science and technology. You will learn about the fundamentals of graphene as well as emerging practical applications for it. Topics covered include material properties, electronics, physics, physical chemistry, synthesis and device fabrication and application.
Please note that in order to benefit fully from this course you should have an adequate knowledge of physics, engineering science and a university level in mathematics and chemistry.
Do I have a possibility to present my research?
Delegates have the opportunity to present their research as poster. To do so, you have to submit an abstract when registering for the conference.
