Graphene Flagship Spearheads

Developing new and improved products with integrated graphene or related materials. The Graphene Flagship funds a number of spearhead projects, initiatives with well-defined, application-oriented objectives that are motivated by market opportunities. These spearheads focus on a wide range of application areas, but all have the common goal of developing new or improved products with integrated graphene or related materials.

Graphene from the Buyer's Perspective – The Power of Standardisation, to be held virtually on Tuesday, 19 January 2021, will be the first in a series of events highlighting "The Power of Standardization," hosted by the Graphene Flagship. Together, we are aiming at connecting the global efforts towards graphene standardisation.

2D materials for semiconductor industry
4 February 2021

The 2D-Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL) is a first-of-its-kind manufacturing facility for graphene and 2D materials. Together, key European companies and research centres will produce electronics, optoelectronics and sensors based on these innovative materials on a pilot scale. Funded by the European Commission, this Graphene Flagship initiative aims to secure a major role for Europe in the ongoing technological revolution by propelling 2D materials into commercial applications. This event marks the public launch of the 2D-EPL and will give participants insights on this new Graphene Flagship project and how it can spearhead the introduction of graphene and related materials in semiconductors.

​The Graphene Flagship delivers concrete opportunities for innovation to address some of the major societal challenges in Europe. However, this effort would be meaningless without focusing heavily on sustainable development. Overall, our projects contribute to 11 SDGs. We believe graphene and layered materials will play a key role in the green revolution.
