International Workshops


A mechanism for exchange on the latest developments in the field of graphene and 2D materials with leading groups worldwide and to identify common challenges and opportunities for collaborations.

EU Funded

The Graphene Flagship develops its international collaborations around a series of workshops with several countries to discuss the latest advances in graphene and related 2D materials research, and identify opportunities for future collaborations. Workshops are jointly organised in Europe and overseas by Graphene Flagship and counterpart researchers in the United States, Japan, Korea, Australia and China. Some of the international activities, in particular with the United States, Korea and Japan, began during the ramp-up phase and have continued in Core 1 and Core 2. Some new ones, namely with China and Australia, were launched in Core 1 and Core 2 respectively.

The key areas of interest and global challenges in the field that have emerged systematically during these interactions are the synthesis and exploration of fundamental materials properties, as well as GRM processing and device engineering. Other areas of high interest, in line with the higher TRL trends within the Graphene Flagship, are energy applications, graphene production and its use for protective coatings and composites. Certification and standardisation services, as well as commercialisation and technology roadmap are among hot topics of common interest explored in the frame of the international workshops. More industry driven discussions and interactions are expected to take place in future events.

Sustainability and Graphene Series III


Ensuring clean water and sanitation is the sustainable development goal N6 identified by the UN. Dr Manuela Melucci will present a selection of case studies of graphene materials and devices realized at CNR that commit to achieving this global aim. She will discuss performance, sustainability issues in comparison with standard technologies and future challenges.
