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.
MEDICA is the largest medical trade fair in the world – in 2017 it attracted more than 123,000 professional trade visitors from 130 nations and more than 5,100 exhibitors from 66 countries in 17 halls. The Graphene Flagship used this opportunity to showcase the latest graphene research in Graphene Biomedical Technologies to decision-makers in the medical industry from all over the world.
The US-EU 2D Workshop was held on October 23-25, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia, USA. Coorganized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Graphene Flagship, this workshop provided a venue for discussion of common challenges and opportunities in this rapidly developing research area.
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.
At the Tallinn Digital Summit, a forum for Heads of State and Government from across Europe to discuss digital innovation and Europe’s digital future, the Graphene Flagship showcased the potential of graphene and related materials with an array of interactive demonstrators and prototypes.
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 Graphene Flagship and ICFO, with support from the GSMA, presented the Graphene Experience Zone at the 2017 Mobile World Congress (MWC). MWC is the world's largest gathering for the mobile industry, (with over 100,000 attendees), and was held from 27 February to 2 March 2017 in Barcelona. The Graphene Experience Zone showcased the latest achievements and innovations from the graphene community in an interactive and accessible way.
Under the umbrella of the Graphene Flagship, a number of partners are exhibiting products and prototypes at the Composites Europe 2016 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The EU-US Workshop 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.
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.
