Graphene: Commercialisation and Applications 2014

Thursday 12 Jun to Friday 13 Jun, 2014
University Place, The University of Manchester

Graphene: Commercialisation and Applications 2014 - Global Industry & Academia Collaboration Summit

In January 2013, the EU announced graphene as a billion euro technology flagship, signalling a continent-wide effort to advance the development of the revolutionary material to mass-market applications. This cements the understanding that scientific research must work alongside industry and market leaders to ensure development progresses towards industrially viable applications, rather than being confined to the lab.

Since graphene's discovery 9 years ago, an enormous number of potential applications have been identified. From sports equipment to the next generation in advanced electronics, the superlative properties of the "wonder material" have been seen as game changers in their respective fields.

However, many questions remain before the commercialisation of graphene can be realised:

  • What are the timelines and roadmaps for these applications?
  • Will material capability translate into device performance?
  • How much will the material cost and in what qualities and quantities will it be available?
  • Is production scalable?

As the only forum examining industry concerns, the Graphene Commercialisation And Applications Global Industry & Academia Collaboration Summit 2013 will address these vital issues, bringing together scientific experts as well as industry leaders to delve into the true commercial viability of graphene's applications, and steps required for scale up.
