Partnering mechanisms under FP7

The purpose of Associated Membership is to facilitate alignment and information flow between the Graphene CP-CSA and related national and European activities as well as help to achieve the science and technology targets of the Graphene Flagship.
​As part of its mission to strengthen Europe’s graphene research and development community, the Graphene Flagship introduced the concept of Associated Members (AMs) during the Fall 2014 to be implemented under FP7 phase (till March 2016) in order to set the principles by which research teams or organisations, which are not part of the Graphene Flagship consortium, can be integrated into the project. The aim is to provide flexible and efficient mechanisms to perform research and innovation activities that will be in line with the overall Graphene Flagship’s objectives and be of mutual benefit to all parties.

The purpose of Associated Membership is to facilitate alignment and information flow between the Graphene CP-CSA and related national and European activities as well as help to achieve the science and technology targets of the Graphene Flagship creating a synergy with other organisations receiving funding from, e.g. FLAG-ERA, Member States, EU projects, or the private sector.

Organisations that participate in the Graphene Flagship related activities other than the Graphene CP-CSA, funded, e.g., by national means, are eligible to become Associated Members (AMs).

The Executive Board appoints Associated Members (AMs) upon nomination by:

  1. FLAG-ERA
  2. National or regional research funding agencies
  3. The European Commission
  4. Executive Board of the Graphene Flagship
All nominations must address the how the nominee contributes the overall target of the Graphene Flagship, to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society.
