An overview of the Health and Environment Work Package
As the drive to commercialise graphene continues, it is important to thoroughly research and understand all factors that could influence its safety. The Graphene Flagship project has a dedicated Health and Environment Work Package to study the impact of graphene and layered materials on human health, as well as their impact on the environment.
Graphene Flagship Spearhead Project GRAPHIL targets an urgent market and societal need; the removal of toxins and contaminants that are increasingly present in European water sources.
The Graphene Flagship's AEROGrAFT spearhead project’s graphene-based smart filters provide cleaner air and offer a more sustainable solution for in-flight air filtration.
Graphene-enabled sensors for wound monitoring, pathogen detection and more
Researchers at the Graphene Flagship are exploring the potential of graphene in applications like sensors, coatings and foams to tackle air pollution.
Graphene Flagship researchers discovered reduced graphene oxide particles released from plastic composites after abrasion induce negligible health effects in safety analyses
NeuroStimSpinal combines materials science, electrical engineering, bioengineering and biomedicine to accelerate spinal cord injury repair
Graphene Flagship researchers Valentina Castagnola and Clarissa Braccia, based at Graphene Flagship partner IIT, in Italy, share their latest experiences and discoveries in the field of graphene and related materials.
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed a flexible neural probe made of graphene-based field-effect transistors. This device records the full spectrum of brain signals, including infraslow signals, demonstrating the ability of graphene-enabled devices to detect some signs of epilepsy with high fidelity.
The Graphene Flagship continues succeeding in its goal of bringing graphene and layered materials to the European market. Funded by the European Commission, our project develops new technologies to revolutionise industry, from sustainable transportation to efficient communications.
