The Graphene European Flagship is a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship established by the European Commission. With a budget of €1 billion, the Graphene Flagship represents 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 will be incorporated in the scientific and technological work packages from the Horizon 2020 phase (1 April 2016 – 31 March 2018)
|The China Innovation Alliance of the Graphene Industry (CGIA) was established on 13th of July, 2013 with the support of the Chinese Government bodies including the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, the National Natural Science Foundation of China and other government institutions; and with the valued guidance of the China Industry University Research Collaboration Association, and the China Association of Technology Entrepreneurs.|
|The National Graphene Association brings together graphene stakeholders — entrepreneurs, companies, researchers, developers and suppliers, investors, venture capitalists and government agencies — to drive innovation, and to promote and facilitate the commercialization of graphene products and technologies in the United States. As a premier networking and information platform, NGA’s role is to expedite the integration of graphene into the commercial arena by providing its members: 1) access to critical graphene technology industry information, and 2) strategic networking opportunities to form collaborations and crucial partnerships.|
|Graphene Entrepreneur is an extension of the National Graphene Association and supports NGA’s mission “to connect current and future stakeholders, facilitate innovation and foster commercialization of graphene. As the premier networking and communication platform in the United States, NGA establishes a forum for graphene entrepreneurs, researchers, companies, suppliers, developers, investors, venture capitalists and government agencies to speed development and integration of this amazing technology in national commerce.”|
|The Phantoms Foundation focuses its activities on Nanoscience & Nanotechnology and is a key group in structuring and fostering European Excellence and enhancing collaborations in this field. Its goals are i) to provide an innovative platform for dissemination, transfer and transformation of basic nanoscience knowledge; and ii) to strengthen interdisciplinary research in nanoscience and nanotechnology and catalyse collaboration among international research groups and favour the emergence of new joint project proposals.|
|The "Graphene and Nanotubes: science and applications" ("GNT") group is a national research group (GDR 3217) and an international coordination network (GDRI) cross-linking research on nanotubes and graphene. Its scientific activity is based on three research themes which develop knowledge of basic properties of individual nano-objects as well as their manipulation for developing devices linked to the industrial and socio-economical world. The group gathers French, European and Canadian partners who have played a major role in the activities of the previous GDR, and to which are added scientists of international reputation working on graphene.|
