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.

Composites Europe 2016


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. Due to its unique combination of properties, graphene is being used to improve the functionality of composites. Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon-based material in the form of robust, flexible sheets that are a single atom thick. It is lightweight but at the same time strong and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Graphene sheets with a lateral size of several microns can be produced on a large scale from the exfoliation of graphite.
