Advanced materials, such as nanomaterials, 2D materials, or thin films, play a crucial role in driving economic development and addressing major challenges in the coming years. These challenges include mitigating the impact of climate change, advancing lightweight engineering, enhancing catalysis, and improving medical applications. To comprehend the performance of these materials and ensure their acceptance across various sectors as safe and sustainable for both humans and the environment, the availability of reference procedures, materials, and data is essential. One versatile tool for establishing such references and evaluating the proficiency of individual laboratories and their competencies is through (international) interlaboratory comparisons (ILC). Notably, initiatives like the Versailles Project on Advanced Materials and Standards (VAMAS) provide a platform for conducting ILCs. This webinar will showcase various examples of interlaboratory comparisons, illustrating their impact on the development of reference products.
Graphene Flagship Events
The Graphene Week 2024 stands at the forefront of cutting-edge research, innovation, and technology. As Europe's leading event on 2D Materials, supported by the European Commission, it unites over 500 international experts and students to discuss key topics concerning to graphene and 2DM. In 2024 the programme welcomes over 200 speakers, the Innovation Forum, the Exhibition and dedicated sessions on diversity, early career development, EC future opportunities, 2DM for the future and much more. Join us for the 19th edition of Graphene Week in Prague, let’s turn wonder into action!
The Graphene Flagship organises a variety of events for researchers, industry and early career researchers in order to inspire you to engage in better research, innovation and collaboration. The project is also represented at external tradeshows and exhibitions.
This workshop, hosted by the Graphene Flagship's 2D-EPL and its partner AMO, will examine electronics based on transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs). This free hybrid event will take place in Aachen, Germany as part of the two-day event on 2D Materials for Future Electronics. Attendees are welcome to join in-person for the full two-day event, or online for the 2-hour digital 2D-EPL workshop.
A major challenge in using 2D-materials is linked to the impact of the environment on its properties. These effects are mitigated by careful material and process selection. The transition from lab–to–fab is enabled by setting up dedicated tools and processes. Gaining insights on the source of process variations and their impact on the variability of device parameters is key to making the right choices in the set-up of pilot-line processes.
In this workshop, organised as part of the Graphene Week 2023 programme, attendees had the chance to learn about the ongoing research activities and real-world technology transfer applications in the United Arab Emirates, including spin-offs from the Graphene Flagship. The Research & Innovation Center for Graphene and 2D Materials, at Khalifa University, is very focused on the commercialization of research and addresses challenges from the region with innovations in construction, health care, aerospace, energy and water purification. Apart from presentations, this session provided opportunities to discuss topics of common interest, explore possible new collaborations, and a Q&A session.
This year's event included 1-to-1 career coaching sessions and talks about creating a healthy work culture.
Graphene Week 2023 inspired a fusion of graphene research and technology with industrial innovation – it is where science meets business! The Graphene Innovation Forum is a good spot to learn about the latest graphene innovations, spin-off company successes, and the future of the graphene industry.
Graphene Week 2023 - FROM WONDER TO ACTION - marks not only the Graphene Flagship’s 10-year anniversary celebration, but also the 400th birthday of Graphene Week 2023’s host city, Gothenburg – and celebrations of these two milestones coincided in Gothenburg, 4-8 September 2023.
Every second year, Euronanoforum brings industry, academia, policy makers and other stakeholders together to discuss developments on nanotechnologies in an open forum. In 2023, the EuroNanoForum will be held in Sweden, 11-13 June. The Graphene Flagship will exhibit and contribute to the event's scientific programme.
The workshop is focused on the usage of 2D materials in sensors. It presents the newest updates from the 2D-EPL project and the offered multi-project-wafer (MPW) runs. The industry presentations showcase the unique possibilities of 2D materials in sensing.
The 6th Japan-EU Workshop on Graphene and Related Materials was held in Tokyo (Japan) on 25-26 May 2023. This workshop was a forum for the exchange of experiences, practices and ideas related to the current and emerging topics associated with the fundamental materials synthesis, physics and devices for graphene and related 2D materials. During this event, major scientific achievements, most urgent open questions and newly identified challenges were addressed. Additional objectives included exploring further possibilities for collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and Japan.
The 8th EU-Korea Workshop on Graphene and Related Materials will be held on 22 - 23 May 2023 in Seoul (Republic of Korea). This workshop is aimed at providing a Forum for the exchange of experiences, practices and ideas related to the current and emerging topics associated with the basic chemistry, physics and engineering approaches comprising materials synthesis, study of fundamental properties via multi-scale characterisation, application development and commercialisation for graphene and related 2D materials. In addition, the objective is to explore and promote further collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and Korea.
This first United Arab Emirates - EU Graphene Flagship workshop, co-organised by the EU Graphene Flagship and Khalifa University, aimed at presenting the ongoing research activities on both sides and discussing possible international collaborations. The EU's Graphene Flagship delegation comprised key leaders in fundamental research, materials production and applications, including representations from EU industries. This two-day workshop provided the opportunity for researchers and industry stakeholders in Europe and United Arab Emirates to discuss topics of common interest, share research results with promising application potential and explore possible new collaborations and incubation of joint ventures.
