Graphene to create better products

Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms, may be the most versatile substance available to mankind. Graphene’s unique combination of superior properties makes it a credible starting point for new disruptive technologies in a wide range of fields. Applications include electronic paper, flexible personal communications tools and lighter and energy-efficient airplanes.

From laboratory to consumer product

The Graphene Flagship, funded by European Comission, aims at taking graphene from the academic laboratories into European society in the space of ten years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities for Europeans as both investors and employees.  The project is built around 11 specific science and technology areas of research.
