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 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.
After its successful inaugural session at Graphene Week 2015, the Women in Graphene session has been expanded to include talks by invited speakers followed by a discussion and networking event.
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.
The evolution of graphene is happening all around us and its impact on many of the building block components of the mobile industry can be profound. To showcase this, the Graphene Flagship introduced a Graphene Zone at the 2016 edition of Mobile World Congress, 22-25 February 2016, Barcelona, Spain. Alongside with industry and academic co-exhibitors, the Graphene Flagship highlighted graphene in mobile applications, stretching from bendable batteries to new wearables sensors.
Graphene Study is specifically designed to develop outstanding researchers in graphene. Attendees discover new insights and acquire high-level expertise from leading experts in the field, combined with networking opportunities for your future career. The topic of Graphene Study 2016 was on energy, sensors, biomedicine and membranes.
A fringe meeting on the Wednesday afternoon of Graphene Week was held to start a conversation among women and men in graphene research about issues peculiar to women in the 2D materials community.
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 Study 2015 was held during 23 – 28 March 2015, in Kaprun – Zell am See, Austria. Its focus was on science and technology of graphene, related 2D materials, and heterostructures. The education programme of the Graphene Study 2015 addressed the following areas: Fundamental Science of Graphene and 2D Materials beyond Graphene, High-Frequency Electronics, Optoelectronics, and Spintronic.
The Graphene Week 2014 was held during 23-27 June, in Gothenburg, Sweden. Its focus was on science, technology and emerging applications of graphene.
Graphene Study 2014 took place between 2-7 February, in Obergurgl, Austria. The event provided delegates with relevant discussions on the uses of graphene in the fields of materials, health and environment, nanocomposites, and production.
