Earlier this year, the Management Panel of the EU Graphene Flagship approved FGV Cambridge Nanosystems as an Associated Member of the Graphene Flagship. We are clearly very excited about this development and, as an integral part of the Graphene Flagship, we are keen to contribute to its overall scientific and technological (S&T) agenda.

As part of the Graphene Flagship we engage in discussions and collaborations with Core Project partners and contribute to future planning of research activities of the Flagship. Currently, we are actively contributing to the graphene standardisation work.

About Graphene Flagship

The Graphene Flagship is a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship by the European Commission. With a budget of €1 billion, the Graphene Flagship represent a new form of joint, coordinated research on an unprecedented scale, forming Europe’s biggest ever research initiative.

The Graphene Flagship is tasked with bringing together academic and industrial researchers to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in the space of 10 years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities. The core consortium consists of over 150 academic and industrial research groups in 23 countries. In addition, the project has a growing number of associated members that are incorporated in the scientific and technological work packages from the Horizon 2020 phase (1 April 2016 – 31 March 2018).
