Graphene Flagship partner Avanzare, Spain, has purchased a new plant to manufacture graphene-enabled products, composites and nanointermediates. Thanks to this recent expansion, the company will become Europe’s biggest graphene producer, levelling with international competitors.
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed an innovative graphene sensor to capture the sound of a single bacterium. These graphene-enabled sensors tell apart living organisms, which enables researchers to identify drug-resistant bacteria through the detection of distinctive sounds.
Four of our inspirational investigators were among the first to join the Graphene Flagship: Xinliang Feng, Mar García- Hernández, Vincenzo Palermo and Amaia Zurutuza. They joined the project with bright ideas, a keen sense of enthusiasm and the unwavering will to succeed.
Since graphene’s discovery, researchers have found hundreds of potential applications for this incredibly versatile material. From brain implants to treat neurological disorders, to the next generation of smart textiles, products enabled by graphene and related materials promise to disrupt individuals, industries and societies. In this article, Kari Hjelt, Head of Innovation at the Graphene Flagship, looks at three examples.
The last years have been quite unusual, but this did not get in the way of new innovations from Graphene Flagship members, Partnering Projects and Spearhead Projects around Europe. Here, Francesco Bonaccorso, Deputy Head of Innovation for the Graphene Flagship, looks back at four of the most-read graphene stories from the last year. Read on to learn about how graphene could give us faster mobile phones, safer aircraft and seafaring vessels, and even a new construction material that replicates human bone.
