Graphene Flagship at ESOF

Future and Emerging Technologies (FET)

New visionary technologies are of prime importance for the growth and well-being of Europe. Spanning information technologies, biotechnologies and novel materials, through life sciences and medicine to social sciences, they are essential to address our societal needs and sustain our industrial competitiveness. The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Programme, promoted as one of the major components of the “Excellence Science” pillar of H2020, is targeting these goals. It focuses on frontier research, supporting novel and visionary thinking towards radically new technologies. FET manages the two H2020 European flagship projects: the Human Brain Project and the Graphene Flagship.

Monday 25 July 2016 from 15.45-17.00

Graphene Flagship speaker: Jonathan Coleman, Trinity College Dublin

Graphene and beyond: a revolution in two dimensions

Hear from graphene Nobel laureate Sir Konstantin Novoselov about how 2D materials research could spark a revolution in real-world applications, and from Professor Frank Koppens on how the Graphene Flagship is ensuring that Europe can compete with the rest of the world on making graphene products a reality. Scientists and industry representatives will then debate the challenges of taking graphene and 2D materials to the market, and what sectors could be transformed by the ground-breaking research taking place all over the world.

Tuesday 26 July 2016 from 15.45 till 18.45

15.45-16.45 (including questions) – Konstantin Novoselov; latest developments in graphene and 2D material research.
16.45-17.15 – Frank Koppens; latest development in the Graphene Flagship and showcase of the success at the Mobile World Congress.
17.15-18.45 – Panel discussion “Taking graphene from research to applications” with Konstantin Novoselov (The University of Manchester), Kari Hjelt (Graphene Flagship), Ray Gibbs (Haydale) and AN Other, likely to be senior person from Siemens.
