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.

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.
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.
As the drive to commercialise graphene continues, it is important to thoroughly research and understand all factors that could influence its safety. The Graphene Flagship project has a dedicated Health and Environment Work Package to study the impact of graphene and layered materials on human health, as well as their impact on the environment.
