Graphene Flagship Events

Upcoming 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. 

Which events are right for you?

For Researchers


Our events for researchers include our annual conference Graphene Week, our workshops for early career researchers Graphene Study, our International Workshops which encourage collaborations with researchers in many other parts of the world, and our digital events.

For Industry


The Graphene Flagship organises several events for industry including the Graphene Marketplace events hosted by Graphene Flagship partners who wish to promote graphene applications in their companies and Innovation Workshops created to foster innovation projects between academia and industry.

In addition to our own industry events, the Graphene Flagship showcases graphene applications at industry tradeshows and exhibitions.

For Students


The Graphene Flagship promotes the education of early career researchers with its Graphene Study events.

For Diversity

The Diversity in Graphene initiative aims to create a collaborative research environment where everybody feels welcome, without any prejudice. The initiative holds two annual meetings, a career day and a meeting at the Graphene Week conference.

Past Events

Sydney, Australia
17 - 19 October 2018

Australia-EU Workshop 2018


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


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.

EU-Korea Workshop 2018


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.

Women in Graphene Career Event 2018


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.

Obergurgl, Austria
05 - 10 February

Graphene Study Winter 2018


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.
