The Graphene Flagship is a #DecadeStrong
The Graphene Flagship celebrates its ten-year anniversary this year. For this reason, we would like to take a moment to acknowledge the progress we have made, the milestones we have reached and, most of all, the people who have made it possible.
Celebrating key milestones for the Graphene Flagship
Graphene Flagship announces 30 percent ROI at conference
For the past decade, the Graphene Flagship, the EU’s largest ever research programme, has been coordinated from Chalmers with Jari Kinaret at the helm. As the project reaches the ten-year mark, expectations have been realised, a strong European research field on graphene has been established, and the journey will continue.
This year marks the ten-year anniversary of the Graphene Flagship, and we are taking this opportunity to celebrate a decade of 2D materials research and innovation. We have helped to shepherd graphene from the lab and into commercial applications.
Science, fun, creativity… and love

Annual Report 2022
The latest Graphene Flagship Annual Report reflects on a decade of 2D materials innovation. Celebrating 10 years, the Graphene Flagship has brought graphene out of the lab and into commercial applications. This edition of the annual report highlights the project's journey from fundamentals to applications. Features cover the Graphene Flagship's concrete outputs, successes and the 2D Experimental Pilot Line's first multi project wafer run.
One third of the Core 3 funding was invested into spearhead projects, a bold move to maximise the impact of the Graphene Flagship in the innovation ecosystem and the European economy.
Economic Impact Report
To properly assess the Graphene Flagship’s economic impact, we commissioned a report from WifOR, an independent economic research institute. By analysing our project outputs, growth in key European industries and the distribution of the original investment by the European Commission, WifOR was able to estimate the project’s impact. Based on a total investment of €1.4 billion in European projects for graphene and related materials, the Graphene Flagship contributed a gross value added of €5.8 billion and helped to create 81,622 jobs in Europe. The Graphene Flagship has yielded an impact 14.5 times higher than the European Commission’s direct investment in the project of €401 million over the past ten years.
