Explore graphene

What is graphene?
Graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – may be the most amazing and versatile substance available to mankind.
The history of graphene
If you have ever drawn with a pencil, you’ve probably made graphene.
The European roadmap for graphene science and technology
This roadmap was developed within the framework of the Graphene Flagship and outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this ambitious project.

About the Project

About Graphene Flagship
The Graphene Flagship is a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship by the European Commission.
The Graphene Flagship coordinates over 150 academic and industrial research groups in 23 countries, and has close to 50 associate members.
Divisions and Work Packages
The 20 Work Packages of the Graphene Flagship are divided into six divisions; four of them scientific and one each for Partnering Projects and Administration.
