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.

EU-Japan Workshop 2018

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.

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.
