Collaboration with Japan

EU Funded

History: Collaborations with Japan were initiated during the ramp-up phase thanks to existing partnerships. The first workshop was hosted by Japan in Tokyo (2015), followed by a workshop in Barcelona (2017). During Core 2, two workshops were organised, in Sendai (2018) and in Pisa (2019) respectively.

Topics in spotlight: materials synthesis and characterisation, fundamental physical properties, GRM-based functional device technology including terahertz, plasmonic and optoelectronic devices based on graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials.

Open exchange and collaborations are fundamental to advancing research. Long-term partnerships like the EU-Japan collaboration play an important role for the entire community working on 2D materials - the high-quality hBN that Watanabe and Taniguchi provide to many research groups worldwide is just one of the most visible examples of the innovations coming out of Japan.
