Work Package 16

The focus of the Innovation Work Package in the Graphene Flagship is to strengthen the project’s cooperation with industry stakeholders in order to increase the technology readiness levels of its outputs.

Our vision

In 2019 the Graphene Flagship took another leap in strengthening its innovation efforts: The selection of 11 industry-led Spearhead Projects with application-oriented objectives that are motivated by market opportunities. These Spearheads focus on a wide range of application areas, but all have the common goal of developing new or improved products with integrated graphene or layered materials.

The Graphene Flagship also announced the creation of the first 2D Experimental Pilot Line. With a budget of almost €20 million over four years, this Pilot Line will pave the way towards commercially competitive graphene products, such as transceivers, photodetectors and sensors.

We are continuing the mission to create a business impact from graphene, and we are now seeing the first wave of graphene-enabled products on the market. The Graphene Flagship’s commercialisation activities are moving from material development towards components and system-level integration. In the future, we will see a growing number of high value-added products for various applications.
