Graphene Flagship Events
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.
Graphene Week is Europe's Leading Graphene Conference, bringing together the latest innovations and leading-edge technology and research on graphene from more than 200 experts related to industry and academia meeting to explore the hottest topics influencing the field.
The 2nd Graphene Flagship EU-China Workshop on Graphene and related 2D materials was held on 07-08 December 2018 at Dresden University of Technology, in Dresden, Germany. The workshop's aim was to be 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. In addition, the objective is to explore further possibilities for collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and China.
The 3rd Graphene Flagship EU-Japan Workshop on Graphene and Related 2D Materials was held on 9-11 November 2018, at Tohoku University, in Sendai, Japan. This workshop provides the opportunity for Japanese and European researchers to discuss and exchange information on the progress in the area of graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials (GRM), fundamental physical phenomena and devices. The aim is to facilitate scientific exchanges and identify the needs and mechanisms for future collaborations.
The 1st EU-Australia workshop on graphene and related materials (GRM) was held on 17-19 October 2018, in Adelaide and Sydney respectively. Co-organized by the Australian Research Council (ARC) Hub for Graphene Enabled Industry Transformation, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and the European Graphene Flagship project, this workshop provided a platform for discussing the common challenges and opportunities in moving graphene from lab to products.
The 4th US-EU Workshop on 2D Materials was held on 13-14 September 2018 at Kursaal Congress Centre, in San Sebastian (Spain) as part of the Graphene Week 2018 conference. Co-organized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the European Graphene Flagship project, this workshop provided a venue for discussing the common challenges and opportunities in this rapidly developing research area.
The 13th edition of Graphene Week held at the Kursaal Congress Centre and Auditorium in the beautiful city of San Sebastian, Spain, came to a close on 14 September. The week featured talks, workshops, discussions, posters, demonstrations, and vital opportunities for meeting and networking.
The 4th EU-Korea Workshop on Graphene and Related Materials was held on 8-9 September 2018 in San Sebastian, Spain immediately before the Graphene Week 2018 conference. The workshop's aim was to be a forum for the exchange of experiences, practices and ideas related to the current and emerging topics associated with the basic chemistry approach, materials synthesis, application development and commercialization for graphene and related 2D materials. The objective was also to explore potential collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and Korea.
Graphene Week 2017, was held on 25-29 September, saw over 550 delegates from 39 countries immerse themselves in the world of graphene and related materials. Graphene Week 2017 was jointly organised by the Graphene Flagship and its partner FORTH (Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas) and held in the Greek city of Athens.
The second Graphene Flagship EU–Japan Workshop was held at the Casa Convalescència, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona Campus in Barcelona (Spain), during 6 - 8 May 2017. Co-organised by the Graphene Flagship and the Japanese Science and Technology Agency (JST), CREST and Science of Atomic Layers (SATL) project, the workshop focused on material production and device fabrication, and exploration of electronic, photonics, and spintronics in novel structures.
The second Graphene Flagship EU-US Workshop on 2D Materials, Heterostructures and Devices was held at the National Graphene Institute in Manchester (UK) during 10-12 October 2016. The workshop provided an open technical forum that brought together leading researchers from the US and Europe to discuss cutting-edge research in 2D materials, their heterostructures, and devices based on such materials. The aim was to facilitate scientific exchanges and discuss needs and mechanisms for future collaborations.
This workshop was held on 15-16 August, in the Natural History Museum, in Copenhagen, Denmark. The purpose of the EU-Korea workshop was to exchange experiences, practices, and ideas related to the current and emerging topics associated with the basic chemistry approach, materials synthesis, application development and commercialisation for graphene and related 2D materials. In addition, the aim of this workshop was to explore further possibilities for collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and Korea.
The 11th edition of Graphene Week was held in the capital of Poland on the main campus of the University of Warsaw, the largest and one of the oldest academic institutions in the country. The university is nestled in the heart of the city’s historic area on Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street, part of the Royal Route, one of the most beautiful places in Warsaw, near the Old Town, the Royal Castle and the National Theatre.
Graphene Week 2015 took place at the University of Manchester in northern England. More than 600 delegates at the Graphene Flagship event presented and discussed a mass of outstanding science and engineering research results, and took part in a number of fringe sessions, including a BBC World Service panel discussion and an open forum. They also enjoyed the premiere of Graphene Suite – a musical composition by the National Graphene Institute’s composer-in-residence.
The Graphene Week 2014 was held during 23-27 June, in Gothenburg, Sweden. Its focus was on science, technology and emerging applications of graphene.
