Curious about the potential of graphene in space? We’ve
teamed up with the European Space Agency (ESA) to deliver new funding
opportunities for this niche area of materials research. This will be
presented by Jason Hatton, from the European Space Agency, and Biliyar Bhat, from NASA, at
Graphene Week 2019, held on Wednesday 25 September at 14.30.
for space application is a lesser discussed area of expertise, but
holds great potential in providing answers to today’s space-related
challenges. In a bid to attract more research to the area, the Graphene
Flagship is encouraging funding to the entire industry to investigate
graphene research for space applications.
session, representatives from the National Graphene Association (NGA),
ESA and NASA will ask one another questions, in preparation for the
collaboration in space between Europe and the United States. Attendees
will also be able to put forward questions to the industry
representatives, to find out how their own research could help ease the
current limitations of space travel.
session, we will discuss the different challenges that space faces —
which cannot be solved by existing technology and materials, but may be
solved by graphene. To attend, simply visit Graphene Week 2019.
