Over the past decade, the Graphene Flagship created a unique community in Europe – an ecosystem for innovation in graphene and layered materials. Now - with 13 new projects - it’s time to expand and set sail for new horizons.
Meta-market analysis identifies composites, batteries and electronics as major application areas likely to drive the overall development of the graphene market towards mass production.
The Graphene Flagship was funded to ensure that Europe would maintain its lead in graphene research and innovation following the scientific breakthrough of graphene’s isolation at the University of Manchester. The European Commission launched the unprecedented long-term and large-scale Flagship research initiatives to tackle major challenges in science and technology, bringing positive changes that benefit society and the economy and advance European leadership in technology and industry. A decade on, we are proud to say that the Graphene Flagship has delivered on its promise. The clearly achieved objectives within scientific excellence, as well as societal and economic impact are detailed inside these pages.

For the past decade, the Graphene Flagship, the EU’s largest ever research programme, has been coordinated from Chalmers with Jari Kinaret at the helm. As the project reaches the ten-year mark, expectations have been realised, a strong European research field on graphene has been established, and the journey will continue.

Over the last 10 years, the number of companies and industries involved in the Graphene Flagship increased considerably. Large companies, spin-offs and SMEs have come aboard our community as Graphene Flagship Partners or Associated Members.
Graphene Flagship’s annual conference, Graphene Week, will take place at Gothia Towers in Gothenburg, Sweden, 4 to 8 September 2023. The event will mark the 10-year anniversary of the Graphene Flagship and announces the results of a highly anticipated economic impact report. Results include a 14.5-fold return on initial investment and the creation of 81,000 jobs. The Graphene Flagship will present these findings at Graphene Week 2023, to register visit graphene-flagship.eu.
Trace amounts of graphene and other layered materials are often sufficient to enhance the properties of other materials. Graphene Flagship researchers add graphene to metals, plastics and other materials, to make them stronger, lighter, conductive and so forth.
This year marks the ten-year anniversary of the Graphene Flagship, and we are taking this opportunity to celebrate a decade of 2D materials research and innovation. We have helped to shepherd graphene from the lab and into commercial applications.
Graphene can be produced using a range of methods, but what are the most sustainable options? To answer this question, Graphene Flagship researchers published three studies related to the sustainable production of graphene related materials and their life cycle assessment – the best tool to evaluate the environmental footprint of a product or material.
