Graphene Innovation Forum

– from remarkable ideas to marketable products 

Graphene Innovation Forum

Part of Graphene Week 2022

BMW Welt, Munich

7-8 September 2022

The Graphene Innovation Forum is focused on innovation and commercialization of applications containing GRMs. It is an opportunity to hear about successful implementation of graphene from both start-ups and larger corporations. The Graphene Flagship Spearhead projects will present their experiences of challenges and opportunities when introducing GRMs. Interactive panel discussions with industrial representatives will probe into future trends of graphene applications and the Graphene Flagship’s work in standardization to facilitate commercialization of GRMs will be presented. A group of investors will give their views on GRMs as an area worth financing. There will also be opportunities to network and discuss ideas with the presenters as well as fellow attendees.
