Graphene Week is happening soon!

Over the last few months, our community has been asking us lots of questions about Graphene Week 2021. Now, it’s clearer than ever that our dedicated and enthusiastic graphene family are excited to hear more about the Graphene Flagship’s signature world-leading event. On this page, we are delighted to answer some of your questions.

Something exciting is coming

For 14 years, Graphene Week has inspired scientists, entrepreneurs, students and anyone interested in graphene and layered materials, from across Europe and beyond. Over the years, we have cultivated a world-leading arena for people to exchange ideas and get connected. This year, to make sure we provide the best possible experience to our ever-growing graphene community, Graphene Week is going digital.


Welcome to the ultimate online Graphene Week experience. Take part in poster sessions, meet your fellow attendees, join group discussions, and of course, enter one of our digital auditoriums for talks from a whole host of leading speakers.


Join Graphene Week from our cutting-edge hotspot for virtual events: the Graphene Hub. Sign in from anywhere in the world, in the comfort of your own home, without the inconvenience, costs or carbon emissions of travelling.


This time, Graphene Week isn’t just a week – you can drop in and out at any time over two weeks, from 13 September to 30 September 2021. In addition, the live conference will take place from 20 to 24 September. Put these dates in your calendar!


Our mission is to host events focused on safety, wellness and diversity. By hosting Graphene Week 2021 online, we uphold both our commitment to the graphene community and our responsibility to create the most welcoming experience for attendees around the world.


If you have an interest in graphene and layered materials, Graphene Week is the place to be. Our attendees range from students and early-career researchers to world-leading professors and CEOs, and you can be one of them.

The Graphene Hub will be open from 13 September to 30 September 2021. This isn’t just a regular conference that you have to plan your whole schedule around, and only attend for a short time.
