Programme highlights 

The fundamental science behind graphene and other two-dimensional materials is key at Graphene Week – as it helps to explore new concepts that lead to the applications of the future – but this edition also focused on applied science (electronic devices, sensors, flexible electronics, biomedical applications, composites, energy storage, etc.) and on graphene for a sustainable future, including renewable energies.

Graphene Week 2018 included talks from 30 keynote and invited speakers, 95 oral presentations across three parallel sessions, four fringe sessions, over 300 poster contributions, a Graphene Innovation Forum and an Exhibition area. The programme also featured special workshops as the Graphene for Human Space Exploration, Women in Graphene and a US-EU Workshop on 2D Materials.
