About the Project

The GRAPHENE Flagship is one of Europe’s first technology flagships. The mission is to take graphene and related layered materials from academic laboratories to society, revolutionise multiple industries and create economic growth and new jobs in Europe. 

With GRAPHENE Flagship, Europe has launched a new form of joint, coordinated research initiative of unprecedented scale. Graphene Flagship brings together an academic-industrial consortium of 75 partners from 17 countries aiming at a breakthrough for technological innovation. The research effort covers the entire value chain from materials production to components and system integration, and targets a number of specific goals that exploit the unique properties of graphene

The ESF is a partner of the GRAPHENE Flagship consortium partner during its 30-month ramp-up phase in the FP7 programme. The ESF is involved in the Flagship’s dissemination (organisation of the Graphene Week Conferences 2014 and 2015), programmatic alignment between national and European initiatives and the management of the GRAPHENE competitive call for consortium extension.

Call for grants for young researchers involved in graphene-related research activities to attend ESOF2016 now open

European Science Foundation (ESF) and Graphene Flagship in collaboration with EuroScience have opened a call for young researchers who are involved in graphene and related materials research activities to help cover the costs of registration, travel and accommodation to attend ESOF2016.

The ESOF2016 event to be held in Manchester, 23-27 July 2016 will bring 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science. ESOF is one of the best opportunities for everyone from leading scientists, early careers researchers, business people, policy makers, science and technology communicators to the general public to come together to find out more about how science is helping us advance today.

The new deadline for applications is April 7th, 12:00 (noon), CET.
The full call information and online submission platform is available here.
