Innovation Forum

Following the success from last year the sessions known as the Innovation Forum will have a place also in the programme of this year's conference. Spread out over three days the Innovation Forum will cover the topics Roadmap, Commercialisation and Industrialisation. Note that minor changes in the programme might occur.

Roadmap - Industry needs and perspective towards future applications

Monday, 25 September 2017

15:00-16:20 - Roadmaps leading the way

The Graphene Innovation Forum begins with a session dedicated entirely to roadmapping graphene and other 2D materials towards future applications and will focus firmly on the needs and perspectives of industry. Graphene and other 2D material technologies have promising properties and the potential to lead to advancements in different applications.

Thomas Reiss, Fraunhofer ISI: Graphene Flagship Roadmap and its methodsMallika Bohm, Talga Technologies Ltd: Advances in developments of industrial products applications for graphene and its derivativesAlvaro Jara, Airbus: Airbus - an industrial perspective on the roadmap

16:40-18:00 - Harvesting from research

For new technologies finding their way into products, several aspects have to be addressed. This session explores how to create a positive innovation climate, map assets, spin off an idea and to create your own business.

15:00-16:20 - Commercialisation

Commercialisation is at the heart of the Graphene Innovation Forum and this session will explore how to accelerate graphene and related 2D materials through to commercialisation.

​James Baker, National Graphene Institute: Graphene - the route to commercialisation - the "teenage years"

Zina Jarrahi Cinker, National Graphene Association
Selim Stahl, RISE - Research Institutes of Sweden: Estimating costs of producing GRM filled polymers
​Burcu Saner Okan, Sabanci University: Graphene production from pyrolyzed carbon by mild and recycling technique and its utilization in automotive plastic trim parts

16:40-18:00 - Industry's perspective

Meet representatives from ABB, Ericsson and Thales, all in the middle of the commercialisation path, who will talk about their experience and share their insights.

Ana Ballestar, GPNT S.L.: Graphene for high-performance electronic devices
Gemma Vall-Llosea, Ericsson Research RA HDE: Industrial applications of graphene
Paolo Bondavalli, Thales: Supercaps for industry use
Anna Andersson, ABB: GO a new lubricant in industrial applications

15:00-16:20 - Standardisation - essential to future products

The importance of standardisation for any material that is to be commercially successful cannot be overstated and there are many different issues surrounding standardisation of graphene and other 2D materials. Several of these issues will be explored in this session.

Andrew Pollard, NPL Management Limited: Advances in measurements and standardisation of graphene and related 2D materials
Ziad Melhem, Oxford Instruments NanoScience: Industrial feasibility of a graphene quantum Hall resistance standard operating in a cryogen-free table-top system
Jan Obrzut, National Institute of Standards and Technology: Surface conductance stabilization against environmental doping in epitaxial graphene

David Mackenzie, Technical University of Denmark: Quality Assessment of CVD graphene: continuity, uniformity and accuracy of mobility measurements

16:40-18:00 - Processing on Wafer

A key for future success of graphene in the electronics industry is the ability to process graphene and related materials on wafers. In this session, we will hear representatives from both universities, institute and industry speak on methods related to processing on wafers.

Maria Kim, Aalto University: Direct transfer of wafer-scale graphene films
Ken Verguts, Imec: Wafer-to-wafer direct transfer of high-quality single-layer graphene grown on a platinum template
Sten Vollebregt, TU Delft: A transfer-free wafer-scale method for the fabrication of suspended graphene beams for squeeze-film pressure sensors
Alba Centeno, Graphenea: Current status and needs of CMOS compatible CVD graphene
