While the 2D materials community celebrates 20 years since the isolation of graphene, IOP Publishing’s 2D Materials journal celebrates its 10-year anniversary. The journal will mark this occasion with a special contribution to the Graphene Week 2024 conference to be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
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.
Learn about graphene and its various uses in applications ranging from aircraft overhead to cars on the road, and even underground. Graphene's properties can make materials stronger, lighter, flexible and even electrically conductive. That opens many possibilities for new and improved technologies.
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.
Proteases recently emerged as a promising new class of biomarkers with a broad diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic potential for different human diseases including neurological and psychiatric diseases, several types of cancer and immune system disorders. However, there is a lack of tools for real-time activity analysis of disease-related protease biomarkers.
The 2DNEURALVISION project will carry out leading-edge research in the field of 2DM (two-dimensional materials) for wide-spectrum image sensing and vision systems. Its scientific achievements will aim to drive disruptive improvements in the automotive, AR/VR, service robotic and mobile device sectors, which expect to have a major impact on society.
GIANCE, a groundbreaking research project, officially commenced on October 1st, marking a significant step toward addressing environmental challenges with innovative solutions.
In October, a new Horizon Europe-funded project launched within the ecosystem of the Graphene Flagship. With a consortium of 11 partners from 8 countries, the Next-2Digits project aims to develop the next generation of sensors and imagers enabled by 2D material digital integration.
A consortium of 11 partners from six European nations has officially launched the GRAPHERGIA project, an ambitious 3.5-year Research and Innovation endeavour, funded by €4.5 million under the banner of Horizon Europe's Graphene Flagship initiative. Aimed at redefining the integration of energy solutions into everyday life, GRAPHERGIA is set to transform how we use and store energy, marking a significant milestone in the journey towards a climate-neutral future.
With a nearly €6 million budget, 2D-BioPAD will develop a diagnostic system for early Alzheimer's disease detection. This Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Action funded by the European Union, officially commenced on October 2023 and will last 48 months.
The Graphene Flagship is sailing on to new horizons, under a different funding structure that adapts to the widening European ecosystem around graphene and layered materials.
Graphene Flagship announces 30 percent ROI at conference
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.
