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.
Beyond the lab: graphene’s special role in a Polish charity initiative
Graphene integrated with other materials brings new products to the forefront of innovation - an exciting advancement that we will be exploring in our "Materials of the future" series. We begin this series with metals.
Meet the Graphene Flagship's Ethics Advisory Board
The Graphene Flagship Ethics Advisory Board helps to review project proposals for ethical pitfalls and serves as an advisory body for partners with questions about best practice, safe by design products and research initiatives and other ethical quandaries.
The 3rd Australia-EU Workshop on Graphene and Related Materials will be held on 30-31 March 2023 in Melbourne, Australia. By bringing together leading researchers from Europe and Australia, this workshop aims at being an open forum to discuss cutting-edge research in the field and foster scientific exchanges, practices and ideas related to the current and emerging topics associated with graphene and 2D materials. Several topics will be discussed, from application and commercialization to new fundamental concepts, synthesis, composites, membranes, biomaterials, electronics, sensors, composites, coatings and energy devices.
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? View the full agenda below.
