2nd Graphene Flagship 'EU-Australia Workshop' on graphene and related 2D materials

The 2nd EU-Australia Workshop was held at the Marina Congress Centre in Helsinki (Finland), during 23-24 September 2019. The workshop provided an open technical forum that brought together leading researchers from Europe and Australia to discuss cutting-edge research in 2D materials, with the aim to facilitate scientific exchanges, discuss common challenges and explore mechanisms for future collaborations.

The workshop was co-organised by the European Graphene Flagship project and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Hub for Graphene Enabled Industry Transformation as a parallel session of the Graphene Week 2019 conference and gathered numerous attendees of the conference. The feedback of Australian delegates has been very positive as they could benefit also from the networking opportunities of the Graphene Week 2019 conference.

The main topics addressed during this workshop were:

  • graphene production and functionalization
  • composites
  • filtration
  • energy
  • fundamentals
  • sensors
  • commercialization and certification

This workshop was a follow up to the 1stAustralia-EU Workshop held on 17-19 October 2018, in Adelaide and Sydney (Australia).
