Graphene for electronics
As the electronics industry strives to maintain its pace of innovation, graphene – being flexible, strong, thin and highly conductive – has much to offer. Graphene can help to facilitate the next generation of technology from chips and interconnects for data communication to flexible screens for wearable technology. With miniaturisation a major driving factor of the electronics industry, graphene’s thinness coupled with its high room temperature conductivity shows great promise.
All these subareas represent good opportunities for Europe, either because companies/industries can be enabled by graphene development or because a good part of the corresponding value chain is already in Europe, and in many cases world class research is supporting the creation of new products.
