Innovation in Focus

Graphene Week will once again include Innovation Forum sessions. Spread out over three days the Innovation Forum will cover the topics Wearables, 5G and Datacom, and Energy Technologies.

Innovation and commercialisation, based on a core of world leading science, is what drives the Graphene Flagship. This year it also drives Graphene Week with the Graphene Innovation Forum, spread over three days focusing on Wearables, Datacom & 5G and Energy along with the addition of the Business Networking Lounge.

The Graphene Innovation Forum aims at strengthening ties between Graphene Flagship researchers and industry stakeholders to enable the increase of graphene's technology readiness level. Each day of the Graphene Innovation Forum has a dedicated theme, with Wearables on Monday, Datacom & 5G on Tuesday and Energy on Wednesday. Each session starts with a presentation of the latest results from the Technology and Innovation Roadmap, which was created by the Graphene Flagship to see more clearly the path of graphene to commercial success and will be focused on the session's application area. Following this, the latest results from the Graphene Flagship's application orientated spearhead projects will be presented.  The bulk of the presentations in each session will be given by top level industrial representatives who will be providing an interesting and unique mix of viewpoints on the business relevance of graphene for their application area and for their company, results from their graphene research or a broader overview of their company's involvement and plans in each application area. On Monday and Tuesday, experts will also answer and discuss questions from the audience in an Open Forum and the afternoon will conclude with a networking session – with the connections made here being key.

This year, for the first time, Graphene Week has a dedicated Business Networking Lounge. Graphene Week attendees are encouraged to use this space to meet and discuss anything related to graphene's commercialisation. In this space you will also easily be able to arrange meetings with the Graphene Flagship's Business Developers, if you are interested in commercialising your research or understanding more about how graphene could help solve problems for you company this is a good place to start.
