European Commission Signs €150M Grant Funding the Graphene Flagship
The European Commission (EC) has signed the €150M grant agreement to continue funding the Graphene Flagship’s research and innovation on graphene and related materials from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2023. With this signature, the EC continues its commitment to support the €1B Flagship project, which began in 2013.
An invaluable support network for women working in graphene science
The Graphene Flagship is hosting its annual Women in Graphene Career Development Day, at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), in Bologna, Italy from 18-19 March 2020. The event will be an opportunity to discuss issues related to gender and diversity within the graphene and related materials community.
Graphene Flagship publishes handbook of graphene manufacturing
EU's Graphene Flagship just published a comprehensive and completely open access review article encompassing methods for producing and processing graphene and up to 5,000 innovative layered materials.
European industries lead new Graphene Flagship projects to shape EU’s environmental future
The Graphene Flagship and leading European industries will co-fund a total of 92 MEUR to catalyse the commercialisation of graphene-enabled products. The eleven projects will be presented during a press conference at hotel NH Brussels EU Berlaymont on Monday 9 December 2019 at 11.00am CET.
The Graphene Flagship Means Business
There is a growing appetite for spin-offs and SMEs that have grown out of research. Here are four SMEs that are setting the pace in graphene and related materials (GRM) commercialisation in the Graphene Flagship.
Bringing graphene and new materials to market
Kari Hjelt, Head of Innovation of the Graphene Flagship, explores the graphene's potential to shift entire industries such as aviation, automation and energy generation and storage.
Graphene goes to space!
The Graphene Flagship participates in a sounding-rocket launch in collaboration with the European Space Agency to test the printing of graphene devices in space. The experiment went onboard the MASER 14 rocket, launched earlier today from the European space base in Esrange, Sweden.
An Artificial Skin Made With Graphene That Will Revolutionize Robotic Surgery
Graphene Flagship Associated Member Atomic Mechanics is designing, manufacturing and commercialising a range of sensor devices with applications in robotic surgery equipment.
Graphene to enable future space exploration
EU-funded ‘Graphene Flagship’ project completes zero-gravity experiments. This new campaign of parabolic flights to test novel thermal management graphene devices for space applications. The unique properties of graphene can significantly improve their performance.
Graphene and related materials inks improve solar cells
Imagine the environmental benefits if we could all simply paint solar cells onto the roof of our houses, or onto any surface for that matter. We could do this using perovskite solar cells, but, due to their instability, they have not yet been widely introduced. Now, researchers from the Graphene Flagship have developed hybrids of graphene and molybdenum disulphide quantum dots to stabilise PSCs.
The Graphene Pavilion returns to Mobile World Congress 2019
The Graphene Pavilion, organised by the Graphene Flagship, is returning to Mobile World Congress (MWC) on February 25-28, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. The pavilion, located in NEXTech Hall 8.0 Stand 8.0K31, will showcase the progress of graphene innovation through new prototypes, connecting mobile technologies, wearables, and the internet of things.
Graphene can hear your brain whisper
Graphene Flagship researchers develop a new sensor that records brain activity at extremely low frequencies and could lead to new treatments for epilepsy
Restructuring stereotypes in materials science
According to the Breaking the Barriers report by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 99% of female chemists evidence a lack of progression for women in the sector. To encourage a more diverse community in this field, the Graphene Flagship is hosting a specialist Women in Graphene career development day, held at the National Graphene Institute, Manchester on 11 and 12 February 2019.
High Volume, High Power Graphene Supercapacitors
Graphene Flagship partners Thales and M-SOLV developed a large scale spray coating tool capable of meeting the high volume manufacturing requirements for high power graphene supercapacitors to be used in aeronautical and space industries.
Graphene Flagship start-up Bedimensional receives €18 million private investment
The investment represents a stepping stone towards fulfilling the Graphene Flagship mission: bring graphene and related materials into the market. Bedimensional will now be able to develop new applications of graphene and related materials for energy harvest and storage such as batteries and solar cells.
In a successful collaboration between the Graphene Flagship and the European Space Agency (ESA), experiments testing graphene for two different space-related applications have shown promising results. Based on these results, the Graphene Flagship is continuing to develop graphene devices for use in space.
