FORTH/ICE-HT participates in "GRAPHENE", an EU Future Emerging Technology flagship

Graphene_Flagship.jpg

The European Commission has chosen "Graphene" as one of Europe's first 10-year, 1,000 million euro Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) flagships. The mission of "Graphene" is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionize multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe (please see the relative Press Release).

The coordinator of the Hellenic participation and the national representative of "Graphene" is Costas Galiotis, Professor of University of Patras and Collaborating Faculty Member of FORTH/ICE-HT.

Key applications of graphene are for instance fast electronic and optical devices, flexible electronics, functional lightweight components and advanced batteries. Examples of new products enabled by graphene technologies include fast, flexible and strong consumer electronics such as electronic paper and bendable personal communication devices, and lighter and more energy efficient airplanes. On the longer term, graphene is expected to give rise to new computational paradigms and revolutionary medical applications such as artificial retinas. It is worth noting that "Graphene" is one of the two initiatives (the other is the "Human Brain Project") which won the largest research excellence award in history of EC (please see the relative Press Release).
