As one of the largest research projects funded by the European Commission — with a budget of €1 billion spread across its ten-year duration — the Graphene Flagship’s annual conference evidences the latest developments in the research and commercialization of graphene and related layered materials.
Now in its 14th year, the 2019 conference will focus on potential industrial applications for graphene. Students, academics and industry representatives are invited to Graphene Week to listen to 30 leading experts, see more than 100 presentations and network with 700 participants from around the world.
Featured topics for 2019 include graphene for wearable technologies, 5G technologies and energy technologies — as well as newly developed layered materials and heterostructures.
“The Graphene Flagship has just passed its five-year mark and is increasingly focusing on the area with the potential to create the biggest impact in Europe — the commercialization of graphene for use in industry,” said Jari Kinaret, director of the Graphene Flagship.
