Women in Graphene was held for the first time in a fully three-dimensional and interactive virtual world, with 70 delegates and a whole host of inspiring talks. The coronavirus lockdown did not stand in the way of the Graphene Flagship celebrating diversity.
Graphene Flagship researchers have devised a light diffuser based on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) – a layered material with the same hexagonal structure as graphene, but with complementary properties – able to convert directional laser beams into a luminous source that scatters light in all directions.
Connecting the global community of women working in the field of graphene and layered materials, the Graphene Flagship is hosting its first ever digital Women in Graphene conference on 18 and 19 March 2020.
Researchers at Graphene Flagship partners Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, CIC EnergiGUNE and INCAR-CSIC, Spain, have produced rechargeable batteries and energy storage devices made of a non-toxic and environmentally friendly graphene-based material.
Following the decision of the Graphene Flagship Management Panel, 17 new Associated Members and 16 new Partnering Projects have joined the Graphene Flagship.
Prominent women in the Graphene Flagship discuss how the project encourages diversity and gender equality.
The first graphene-enabled products on the market are ‘impressive’, showcasing Europe’s position at the forefront of research and innovation in the field.
Learn about Graphene Flagship researchers at VARTA developing graphene enabled silicon batteries for wireless headphones, hearing aids, wearables, and small electronic devices.
Graphene Flagship researchers successfully combined graphene with tandem perovskite-silicon solar cells to achieve efficiencies of up to 26.3%. Moreover, they envisioned a new manufacturing method that, thanks to the versatility of graphene, allows to reduce production costs and could lead to the production of large-area solar panels.
European Commission Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager will learn about the progress of our ambitious EU-funded project.
The physical meeting will be replaced with a digital event on the same dates
The Graphene Flagship has appointed Carlo Iorio as their Space Champion, to act as a spokesperson and interface for the Graphene Flagship’s efforts towards the integration of graphene and layered materials into space science and technology.
Boasting light-weight characteristics and supreme thermal properties, graphene-enhanced plane leading edge will save airlines huge sums of fuel costs over the plane’s lifespan.
With this signature, the EC continues its commitment to support the €1B Flagship project, which began in 2013.
