  • The proposed Framework Partnership Agreement aims to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionize multiple industries – from flexible, wearable and transparent electronics, to high performance computing and spintronics. A large European consortium of world-leading academics and key industries, is cooperating closely to create a new disruptive technology. The scope and level of ambition of this endeavor is such that it can only be realized through a large scale coordinated effort that integrates the entire value chain from materials to components and systems. The rewards of the Graphene Flagship will impact the lives of Europeans with increased standard of living through new products, job opportunities, and economic growth.
    In the ten-year time frame, disruptive technologies based on graphene and other two-dimensional materials extend to new areas such as biomedical applications, with the aim of becoming new platform materials, as ubiquitous as steel or plastics. This progression from scientific excellence to industrial exploitation and societal impacts is the guiding principle of the Graphene Flagship.
