This workshop's aim was to foster information exchange and collaboration between Australian organisations and partners of the EU’s Graphene Flagship project with respect to Graphene and related materials (GRM). The programme was organised in both cities of Adelaide and Sydney over 3 days, with various site visits to maximise the exposure of the participants to graphene activities performed in Australia. The workshop featured research topics on GRM with 26 scientific presentations, one industry roundtable session, one working group session, four open discussions, one poster session, lab tours, and social events.
