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.
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.
Marketplace Leonardo was the first in the Graphene Flagship's industrial event series, Graphene Marketplace. Leonardo, one of the Graphene Flagship's largest industrial partners, hosted the event Graphene: revolution is coming to Earth... and Space. Taking graphene from laboratories into the global marketplace in Milan, Italy on 17 October 2018. This event was organised in collaboration with the Graphene Flagship as part of the Graphene Marketplace event series. Graphene: revolution is coming to Earth... and Space brought together the public, press, Leonardo employees, and representatives from across Flagship divisions, to discuss the future possibilities and opportunities for graphene related materials.
The Women in Graphene initiative within the Graphene Flagship has been set up to help support women and create a more gender diverse scientific community.
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.
The Graphene Study 2018, summer edition, titled 2D materials for environment and energy applications, delved into deeper aspects of how things work, exploring experimenters' techniques in studying energy and environmental applications for graphene, mainly filtration and energy storage technologies. Leading academic and industry experts from around the world provided delegates with their insights on topics from nanofluidics and power generation to desalination using graphene.
The workshop was an opportunity for women and men in the flagship and beyond to consider the challenges and opportunities presented to women working in the traditionally male-dominated science field and to empower them to succeed.
The topic of Graphene Study 2018, winter edition, was Structural characterisation of graphene-based materials. The event provided delegates with a strategic overview of the most common techniques and methodologies available to determine the nature, composition and behaviour of 2D nanomaterials, thin films and nanostructured composites. Attendees learned how different techniques can be used to probe into the internal structure and properties of a 2D material or composite.
Graphene Week 2017 hosted a Women in Graphene session, part of the overarching Women in Graphene initiative set up by the Graphene Flagship to help support women and create a more gender diverse scientific community.
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 topic of Graphene Study 2018, winter edition, was Electronic and Photonic Devices and their Applications. 67 students and young researchers out of 21 countries from all over the world spent one week at the fully booked Graphene Study in Hindås/Gothenburg, Sweden to immerse themselves into the world of graphene.
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.
Timed to coincide with International Women’s Day on the 8 March the Graphene Flagship’s Women in Graphene event drew a sell out crowd at University College London to hear from inspirational speakers and develop their professional network.
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.
