The Power of Standardisation

Graphene from the Buyer's Perspective – The Power of Standardisation, which was held virtually on Tuesday, 19 January 2021, was the first in a series of events highlighting "The Power of Standardization," hosted by the Graphene Flagship. Together, we are aiming at connecting the global efforts towards graphene standardisation.

The need for standards

To facilitate market entry of graphene-enabled technologies, it is central that the development of globally relevant standards is done in alignment with industrial needs and requirements. 

In order to identify and assess these needs and requirements, our workshop series will be organised as a unique gathering of international graphene stakeholders: industrial buyers, producers, scientists and standardisation experts.

By its sheer nature, the development of international standards is an intensely collaborative process. In general, standardization is industry driven--mostly buyer driven. If done well, it can give new technologies a tremendous push towards market entry.

Our workshop series will enable an intimate dialogue amongst international stakeholders, with experts of the international standardisation committees in attendance, too.
