This blog was written by Dr Cinzia Casiraghi, a Reader in Graphene and Carbon Nanostructures at The University of Manchester. She is also the Chairperson of Graphene Week 2015 and was the recent recipient of the Marlow Award. Read more
Europe’s Graphene Flagship lays out a science and technology roadmap, targeting research areas designed to take graphene and related 2d materials from academic laboratories into society. The roadmap is published in "Nanoscale", a high impact peer reviewed journal publishing experimental and theoretical work across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Read more
At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Graphene and Quantum technology was discussed. Nobel Prize winner K. Novoselov (and scientist in the Graphene Flagship) was one of the panel members in the following sessions:"Beyond Moore’s Law" and "Global Science Outlook". The Human Brain Project was represented by its coordinator, Prof. Henry Markram, who participated in the following sessions: "The Human Brain: Deconstructing Neuroscience"and "Brain-Based Chips and DNA Hard Drives".
