Work Package 19
The key mission of the Graphene Flagship’s Industrialisation Work Package is to bring research results to the real world. To this end, the group facilitates and accelerates the uptake of graphene and layered materials in commercial applications through four closely interconnected tasks:
- Exploring, evaluating and forecasting application opportunities based on market needs through the Technology and Innovation Roadmap (TIR);
- Improving trust and confidence in graphene and layered material-enabled products by providing validation services;
- Developing consensus-based and accepted international standards for properties and characterisation of graphene and layered materials, and devices, components and systems enhanced by them;
- Communicating characteristics and specifications transparently via the Samples and Materials Database.
Graphene Flagship Partner SPAC Spa is developing new steering wheels and glove boxes with graphene-based materials, as part of the Spearhead Project G+BOARD.
Graphene Flagship Partnering Project SIO Grafen has developed a new supplier guide to graphene that brings together over 100 suppliers.
The first workshop in the series “Graphene from the buyer’s perspective – the powers of standardisation,” held on 19 February 2021 and organised by the Graphene Flagship Standardisation team from Work Package Industrialisation, focused on one specific material group: powders, dispersions and composites.
Graphene Flagship researchers have developed a new measurement standard for the analysis of graphene and layered materials that could accelerate production and optimise device fabrication.
Graphene Flagship researchers have devised a wafer-scale fabrication method that paves the way to the next generation of telecom and datacom devices.
