Student grants

Students and early-stage researches attending the Graphene Week 2016 and submitting an abstract (as first or second authors) may apply for student grants from the Graphene Flagship. Please read the application requirements closely and follow instructions (see below). Incomplete or not eligible applications will not receive funding.

​The purpose of this support programme is to encourage and promote the professional development of students and early-stage researchers in the field. It is considered as an important vehicle in fostering the next generation of graphene researchers and a key element in the continuous renewal of the flagship community.

Student grants are available for a limited number of students planning to attend Graphene Week 2016. Applications for student grants are made through the registration.


Support is available to delegates, currently enrolled or holding early career research positions at one partners of the Graphene Flagship consortium (as core member or Associated Member), and submitting an abstract (as first or second authors).

An abstract, clearly showing the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), must be submitted in to the registration system. Second author applicants must include a statement about their contribution to the project in their application.

Eligible students may apply to receive a €200 discount of the delegates' fee. Only early-bird and normal applications will be considered for the Graphene Week 2016 grant. These grants will be given to those selected by the Graphene Week Program Committee. 


Students entitled to student grants have been notified via email. If you received the Graphene Flagship confirmation email that you are entitled to receive a Graphene Week grant, please register and fill in your contacts in the Graphene Week registration system. All other students should register the normal way (without opting in student grants in the registration system).​
