The EU-Australia workshop, held on Monday 23 September and Tuesday 24 September from 15:30-18:00 at Graphene Week 2019, will highlight collaborative topics between Europe and Australia's 2D-material communities.
The workshop is open to all Graphene Week participants who would be interested in learning about and participating in EU-Australia activities with regards to graphene production/quality control, use of graphene in composites, wafer filters and energy storage, as well as fundamentals of 2D materials.
This workshop, co-organised by the European Graphene Flagship project and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Hub for Graphene Enabled Industry Transformation, serves as a platform for discussing common challenges and collaborative opportunities for the two regions, aiming to enhance information exchange between Australian organisations and partners of the EU's Graphene Flagship. This will be achieved with a consortium of stakeholders working together to achieve common goals.
Following on from the first EU-Australia workshop in 2018, this session will cover an array of topics including graphene for composites, filtration, energy storage, fundamentals and quality control; for these areas to be truly successful, it is important that members of the graphene community do not work in isolation. Stronger collaboration will mean faster uptake of graphene across the world, as institutes address recurring challenges together.
For example, graphene can have huge impact on water purification, helping to alleviate the global demand for clean water. Already, work from Monash University has produced a commercial spin out, setting a great example of taking research findings out of the lab and putting it to tangible use. The workshop serves as a platform to discuss such success stories as well as future challenges in bringing graphene applications to commercial reality.
Both researchers and industry professionals can find out how they can be a part of this collaboration. With knowledgeable speakers from a range of Australian and European institutes, visitors will likely hear multiple opportunities of relevance, for their research or business.
