The Graphene Flagship

EU Funded

The Graphene Flagship is a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship by the European Commission.

With a budget of €1 billion, the Graphene Flagship represents a new form of joint, coordinated research on an unprecedented scale, forming Europe's biggest ever research initiative.

The Graphene Flagship is tasked with bringing together academic and industrial researchers to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in the space of 10 years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities.

The core consortium consists of approximately 170 academic and industrial research groups in 22 countries. In addition, the project has a growing number of associated members that are incorporated in the scientific and technological work packages.

The Graphene Flagship is coordinated by Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

FET Flagships


FET Flagships will have a transformational impact on science, technology and society overall. They foster coordinated efforts between the EU and its Member States’ national and regional programmes. Highly ambitious; they rely on cooperation across a range of disciplines, communities and programmes, requiring sustained support for up to 10 years.
