Organised by the Graphene Flagship, a EU-funded research initiative, and hosted by VTT, the leading research and technology company in the Nordic countries, the conference will reveal the latest developments in graphene and related layered materials from the top experts in the field.
Now in its 14th occurrence, the 2019 conference will focus heavily on the potential industrial applications for graphene, with an objective to encourage bright young scientists to commercialise their results of academic research into tangible products for use in industry.
Students, academics and industry representatives are invited to Graphene Week to listen to 30 world leading experts, witness over 100 oral presentations and network with 700 participants from countries around the world.
Featured topics for 2019 include graphene for wearable technologies, 5G technologies and energy technologies — as well as new revelations about newly developed layered materials and heterostructures.
Alongside this programme, the Graphene Flagship has organised a series of joint events to explore how graphene can be applied in industry. This includes a symposium co-organised by the European Space Agency, the Challenges and Solutions in Support of Human Space Exploration, which will be held on Thursday 26 September.
