The Graphene Flagship celebrates a decade of 2D materials innovation
Funded by the European Commission in 2013, the Graphene Flagship has brought graphene innovation out of the lab and into commercial applications. Bringing diverse competencies from nearly 170 academic and industrial partners in 22 countries together, the Graphene Flagship facilitates cooperation between its partners, accelerating the timeline for industry acceptance of graphene technologies. With applications in everything from energy and transportation to electronics and biomedicine, graphene and other 2D materials are changing the way we live and work. The European Commission’s FET Flagships enable research projects on an unprecedented scale. With €1 billion budgets, the Graphene Flagship, Human Brain Project and Quantum Flagship serve as technology accelerators, helping Europe to compete with other global markets in research and innovation. With an additional €20 million investment, the European Commission has now funded the creation of an experimental pilot line for graphene-based electronics, optoelectronics and sensors.
The graphene technologies improving battery performance
Expected improvements include extreme temperature and pressure.
Materials science meets design and sustainability at Design London 2022: Versarien and designer Steuart Padwick display a low-carbon artwork.
Graphene Flagship researchers published three studies related to the sustainable production of graphene related materials (GRMs) and their Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
Graphene Week 2022, held at the awe-inspiring BMW Welt in Munich, Germany 5-9 September, brought together graphene researchers and industry to an unprecedented level.
Multi-Project Wafer run 2
This summer the 2D-EPL project launched its second multi-project wafer (MPW) run where universities, research institutes and companies can include their designs as dies on joint wafers. This run is mainly intended for graphene sensors, and will be offered by VTT.
What we offer:
- Customizable chips
- Short turn around
- Flexible process flows
- Direct communication channels
- Experienced partners
- Feasibility consulting
During this webinar, Dr Mamoun Taher will present how Graphmatech developed graphene-reinforced pressure vessels and transportation tubes for hydrogen application that leak 40% less. The Graphmatech company, established by Dr Taher supports the green transition by producing and using modified graphene oxide in materials and products.
Ensuring clean water and sanitation is the sustainable development goal N6 identified by the UN. Dr Manuela Melucci will present a selection of case studies of graphene materials and devices realized at CNR that commit to achieving this global aim. She will discuss performance, sustainability issues in comparison with standard technologies and future challenges.
Come listen to presentations and participate in discussions in this workshop focusing on graphene in sensors. Those interested, can participate in a lab tour at RISE Kista, including the Electrum cleanroom and Characterisation labs. This is a joint event organised by SIO Grafen, RISE and the Graphene Flagship.
The Graphene Flagship hosts Graphene Study to help PhD students and early career researchers develop into outstanding researchers in graphene. This edition will explore 2D materials for tomorrow. What is next? What can we expect from graphene science and applications in the future?
