In this session, the Graphene Flagship and invited guests aim to illustrate the power of European collaboration using one of the largest scientific research initiatives funded by the European Commission.
The Graphene Flagship unites 170 partners from across Europe to take graphene and other two-dimensional materials from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in different application areas, including energy.
The unique balance between academic and industrial partners in the Graphene Flagship allows the project to tackle challenges that no individual country or organisation would be able to take on by itself.
The strength of many organisations is combined to create something that is more than just a sum of its parts. While academic partners are good at identifying what is doable, industrial partners are better at deciding what is worth doing.
The Graphene Flagship Spearhead Projects are the quintessence of this model of collaboration. Led by companies, these projects exploit the academic and industrial partnership fostered by the Graphene Flagship to bring graphene and other two-dimensional materials into devices close to the market application.
What you will learn:
- The Graphene Flagship structure and activities in energy generation and storage
- Case study: A Spearhead Project developing the next generation of circuit breakers
- How the Graphene Flagship supports the creation of new companies growing out of research to step into the market
