On the 10th anniversary of Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov’s Nobel Prize-winning work on graphene, a prestigious science journal devotes a special issue to the world’s most talked about nanomaterial.
In October 2013, the European Commission as part of its Future and Emerging Technologies scheme launched two FET flagships – the Human Brain Project, and the Graphene Flagship. These large scale, international research collaborations have been implemented initially as Seventh Framework Programme projects, with the longer term organisation within FP7′s successor research and innovation framework, Horizon 2020.
Research supported by the Graphene Flagship leads to fast, high-performance photodetectors for fibre-optic communication systems.
Scientists in Ireland and the UK have combined the cutting edge material graphene with rubber bands to create wearable body motion sensors that can be used for monitoring joint and muscle motion, breathing and pulse.
The advance shows how research done in the Graphene Flagship can transfer to industry, and accelerate the development and commercial exploitation of this remarkable material.
From the tip of a pencil to a white sheet of paper – if you have ever drawn with a pencil, you have probably made graphene. But what can graphene do?
About 450 delegates took part, more than 400 posters were shown, and the graphene exhibition opened. Graphene Week 2014 really offered great opportunities and lots of new insights. Also, the Graphene Flagship announced that 66 new partners are being invited to join the consortium.
Sandra Šopić, Johannes Jobst, André Dankert, and Zhenyuan Xia were the four individuals who produced the best posters, chosen from more than 400 posters presented over four afternoons during Graphene Week 2014.
Add a video abstract to your academic article and on average it will attract three times the number of downloads. Do not use unnecessarily complicated language. Also, if you write about something that is disruptive and can attract a huge crowd, it is far more likely that the article will be published.
Lots of new insights, great opportunities for networking and the inauguration of a completely new graphene exhibition. Just some of the things that materialised on the second day of Graphene Week 2014.
The opening of the Graphene Week 2014 was a huge success. Some 450 researchers from all over the world working on graphene and related materials have gathered in Gothenburg, Sweden this week.
To coincide with Graphene Week 2014, the Graphene Flagship is proud to announce that today one of the largest-ever European research initiatives is doubling in size. 66 new partners are being invited to join the consortium following the results of a €9 million competitive call.
Energy is an important focus area, as well as a Work Package, for the Graphene Flagship.
Follow Professor Jari Kinaret, Director of the Graphene Flagship, as he together with representatives from research and industry met up to discuss the exciting future of the revolutionary material graphene.
