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 EU-China Workshop was held on 16-18 October 2019, at Shanghai Institute of Microsystem Information Technology (SIMIT), Shanghai, China. The workshop's goal 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.
This US-EU Workshop was held on 9-10 May 2019 at Penn State University, jointly with the 7th Annual "Graphene and Beyond: From Atoms to Applications" Workshop. Co-organized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the European Graphene Flagship project, this workshop aimed at enhancing synergy within the community and build toward a strong future in 2D crystal science and technology, perpetuating the strong tradition of collaboration between the European Union and the US.
Graphene Connect 5G/Datacom took place on the second day of the Graphene Innovation Forum at the Graphene Flagship's annual conference Graphene Week on 23-27 September 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. This event was an industry workshop for participants wanting to discuss opportunities with graphene in the area of 5G and Datacom technologies and meet future partners to create new innovation projects.
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.
Graphene Connect Wearables took place on the first day of the Graphene Innovation Forum at the Graphene Flagship's annual conference Graphene Week on 23-27 September 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. This event was an industry workshop for participants who want to discuss opportunities with graphene in the area of wearable technologies and meet future partners to create new innovation projects
The 2nd EU-Australia Workshop was held at the Marina Congress Centre in Helsinki (Finland), during 23-24 September 2019. The workshop provided an open technical forum that brought together leading researchers from Europe and Australia to discuss cutting-edge research in 2D materials, with the aim to facilitate scientific exchanges, discuss common challenges and explore mechanisms for future collaborations.
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.
Graphene Connect Electronics and Flexible Electronics was an industry workshop for participants to discuss opportunities with graphene in the area of electronics and flexible electronics and to meet future partners to create new innovation projects. This event was co-organised by Infineon and hosted at Infineon’s premises in Regensburg, Germany, from 9:00 to 16:00 on 28 May 2019. The schedule included a kick-off dinner at 19:00 on 27 May and a visit to one of Infineon's production lines.
The Graphene Flagship's Graphene Connect Composites workshop was an industry workshop for participants to discuss opportunities with graphene in the area of composites and meet future partners to create new innovation projects. This event took place at the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre in Manchester, UK, on 27-28 March 2019 lunch to lunch, including a visit of the GEIC at the end of the afternoon on 27 March.
Now in its fourth year, the Graphene Pavilion, curated by the Graphene Flagship Innovation Team, and supported by the European Commission and the GSMA, allowed visitors at Mobile World Congress to explore three different zones focused on the ‘phone of the future’, ‘wearables of the future’ and ‘homes of the future’, which provided an opportunity to see the latest prototypes that are transforming the communication industry.
For the first time the event was a lunch to lunch meeting and included a series of talks and workshops aimed at supporting the career development of women working in graphene.
The Graphene Flagship organizes Graphene Study to educate students and early career researchers interested in graphene and its applications. Graphene Study 2019 will covered fundamental science and material synthesis for graphene, 2 dimensional materials (2DM), their heterostructures, and 2DM applications for electronics, spintronics and optoelectronics.
The EU-China Workshop 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 was to explore further possibilities for collaborative research opportunities between researchers in Europe and China.
The 3rd EU-Japan Workshop 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 EU-Australia Workshop 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.
