New industrial partners join the Graphene Flagship

11 new industrial partners join the Graphene Flagship as a result of an open Expression of Interest to bring in complementary competences and capabilities in specific areas, such as aerostructures manufacturing, biosensors, and supercapacitors.
​11 new industrial partners join the Graphene Flagship as a result of an open Expression of Interest to bring in complementary competences and capabilities in specific areas, such as aerostructures manufacturing, biosensors, and supercapacitors.

The Graphene Flagship’s overriding goal is to take graphene and related materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries. This requires the focus of the Flagship to evolve over the years, placing more resources in areas where this transition is more likely.

“These Expressions of Interest are yet another step in the process of moving graphene from academic laboratories to society. The incoming companies will work closely with existing academic and industrial partners to facilitate this transition and strengthen the utilisation dimension of the Flagship” says Jari Kinaret, director of the Graphene Flagship.

The Expression of Interest is meant to align work already on-going with the overall aims of the Flagship, and to transfer specific know-how not available in the present consortium, while at the same time providing the new partners access to competencies already present in the Flagship. The new partners will be incorporated in the scientific and technological work packages of the core project under the planned Horizon 2020 phase (1 April 2016  – 31 March 2018).

The new partners of the Graphene Flagship are:

  • ABB (Sweden) – Nanocomposites topic one
  • AERNNOVA (Spain) – Aerostructures Manufacturer
  • AIDO (Spain) – Nanocomposites topic three
  • Alcatel-Lucent Italia (Italy) – Optoelectronics
  • FIDAMC (Spain) – Nanocomposites topic two
  • FlexEnable (UK) – Flexible Logic
  • Infineon (Germany) – Electronic Devices
  • M-Solv (UK) – Energy Applications
  • NanOsc AB (Sweden) – Spintronics
  • Novalia (UK) – Printed Prototypes
  • Prognomics Ltd (UK) – Chemical Sensors
The Expression of Interest was initially announced on 26 January 2015, with eight main topics open for submission.

  • Nanocomposites
  • Electronic Devices
  • Aerostructures Manufacturer
  • Energy Applications
  • Flexibel Logic
  • Printed Prototypes
  • Chemical Sensors
  • Graphene Spintronics
A ninth topic on Biomedical Technologies, associated with a new work package of the Flagship, was announced later in February.
