Sara De Simoni, Vice President of Equipment Engineering at Tetra Pak, was instrumental in bringing the company into the Graphene Flagship and organising a joint Marketplace event with the project. Learn more about her motivations and experiences joining the Graphene Flagship in the interview below.
Gloria Guidetti first worked as part of the Graphene Flagship as a PhD student at the University of Bologna, Italy. Since then she has taken a job as a Development Engineer at Tetra Pak, the world’s leading food processing and packaging solutions company, where she helped the company join the Graphene Flagship as an associate member.
A team of scientists at Graphene Flagship partners have exploited the ultra-thin and highly conductive properties of graphene to develop an extremely small accelerometer with exceptional sensitivity.
A public lecture will show how Tetra Pak is planning to use graphene and collaborate with the Graphene Flagship
There is a growing appetite for spin-offs and SMEs that have grown out of research. Here are four SMEs that are setting the pace in graphene and related materials (GRM) commercialisation in the Graphene Flagship.
Graphene Flagship partner, Avanzare Innovación Tecnológica, has been recognised with the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) of the year award by a regional delegation of the Spanish Chamber of Commerce.
On 23-24 September 2019, at the Graphene Flagship's annual conference Graphene Week, delegates from Europe and Australia met to discuss common results and challenges in research advances and developments of graphene and related materials (GRMs).
The Graphene Flagship’s Validation Service –independent and impartial– has been developed to provide confidence in graphene and related materials to enable a quicker transition of graphene products to market.
In a special Nature Nanotechnology issue celebrating 15 years since the Nobel Prize-winning “ground-breaking experiments on graphene,” the Graphene Flagship analyses the current graphene landscape and market forecast for graphene over the following decade.
The Graphene Flagship launched on 1st October 2013. Six years later, researchers from Graphene Flagship partner Université de Strasbourg, France, developed a graphene-enabled pressure sensor inspired by French famous multi-layered pastry - the 'mille-feuille'.
European Commission funded research project, the Graphene Flagship, will demonstrate a selection of the project’s most exciting innovations at the Science is Wonderful exhibition in Brussels, Belgium, on 25 and 26 September 2019. The free exhibition, held at Tour & Taxis, a redeveloped industrial space in Brussels, is part of the European Research and Innovation Days and aims to bring a world of science and technology to the general public.
European Commission funded research project, the Graphene Flagship, held its annual Open Forum discussion on Monday 23 September. As the first presentation of Graphene Week 2019 – Europe’s leading graphene and layered materials conference – the Open Forum announced the latest advances from research within the Graphene Flagship and its potential to improve Europe’s environmental crisis.
Thomas Skordas, Director for Digital Excellence and Science Infrastructure, takes a look at the latest developments in graphene research on the occasion of Graphene Week 2019 – Europe's leading graphene conference, which brings together the latest innovations, leading-edge technology and research on graphene and other layered materials.
Next week, the Graphene Flagship will hold its annual conference – Graphene Week 2019. Coinciding with Finland’s third EU presidency, Graphene Week 2019 will take place from 23-27 September at the Marina Congress Centre in Helsinki, Finland. Hosted by Graphene Flagship partner VTT, the leading research and technology company in the Nordic countries, the conference will reveal the latest developments in graphene and related layered materials (GRMs) from over 700 experts in the field.
