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

Attendees at the Graphene Flagship EU-US Workshop
10 - 12 October 2016

EU-US Workshop 2016


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.

Copenhagen, Denmark
15 - 16 August 2016

EU-Korea Workshop 2016


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.
