New Materials and Devices

​Graphene Connect workshop - New Materials and Devices

Taking place as part of Graphene Week 2017
Thursday 28 September 2017, 14:00-19:00 at
Divani Caravel Hotel, Athens, Greece

The workshop features six guest speakers of leading brands and will cover opportunities and challenges in graphene production, the use of graphene in new devices and the possibility to synthesise other 2D materials, to guide the participants into the future. Besides listening to hands-on experience from leading brands, participants will engage in group discussion and networking sessions tailored to the participants needs and interests.


Registration and prices
Graphene Week delegates:
For delegates attending Graphene Week, Graphene Connect is free of charge but registration is mandatory.

Please note that the number of available seats is limited and that a registration of interest does not guarantee a spot in Graphene Connect. Participants who are accepted to join Graphene Connect will receive an e-mail confirmation schortly before the conference starts. As the Connect workshop series aims to foster collaborative innovation projects between industry and academia, industrial delegates have priority. Seats of no-shows will be made available to other interested delegates in the beginning of the event at 14:00.

Graphene Connect on New Materials and Devices is fully booked

Confirmed Speakers

Salvatore Majorana

In charge of the Technology Transfer Direction of IIT, his role encompasses responsibility on both the Patent Office and the Licensing and Industrial Liaison Office. Prior to join IIT, as Managing Director of an investment company focused on Italian SME’s, Salvatore developed a direct experience in company evaluation, deal structuring, business development, financial management and fund raising.

Jonathan Coleman

Jonathan Coleman is the Professor of Chemical Physics in the School of Physics and the CRANN and AMBER Research centres, all at Trinity College Dublin. His research involves liquid exfoliation of layered compounds such as graphene, boron nitride and molybdenum disulphide. Exfoliation of these materials gives 2D nanosheets which can easily be processed into thin films or composites from applications from energy storage to sensing to electronics.

Stephan Roche

Stephan Roche is an ICREA Research Professor at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and nanotechnology ICN2 in Barcelona (Spain), head of the Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group. His research focuses on the theoretical understanding of quantum transport phenomena and spin dynamics in Dirac materials such as graphene, topological insulators. Since 2011, he has been actively involved in the Graphene Flagship project, currently as a co-leader of the Graphene spintronics workpackage.

Ken Teo

Ken Teo is the Managing Director at AIXTRON Ltd (UK). He holds a BE (Elec) from the University of Canterbury, MBA and PhD from the University of Cambridge. In 2005, Dr.Teo founded and ran as Managing Director Nanoinstruments Ltd (UK) which manufactures innovative Graphene and Carbon Nanotube growth equipment for research and industry; in 2007, Nanoinstruments was acquired by AIXTRON. He is also currently serving on the Executive Board of the Graphene Flagship and is leading WP Production.

Amaia Zurutuza

Amaia Zurutuza is the Scientific Director at Graphenea. She received her Ph.D. degree in polymer chemistry from the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, UK) in 2002. At Graphenea, she leads the research and development activities on graphene-based materials. Since joining Graphenea, she has so far filed for eight patents and published more than 42 papers. In addition, she is working in close collaboration with different companies, universities and research centers to investigate a wide range of graphene applications.

Ken Verguts

Ken obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University College of Leuven in 2011 and his Master’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Leuven in 2014. Ken received a grant from the Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship government agency for doing industrial relevant PhD research. His current PhD research is focused on the development of a CMOS compatible CVD graphene synthesis and transfer module. The end goal is to obtain a reliable wafer-scale graphene integration route for high-end semiconductor applications. The research is performed at Imec vzw in the Nano Applications Materials Engineering (NAME) group under the supervision of Prof. De Gendt (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven).
