Uncovering new technologies from the Graphene Flagship at Mobile World Congress 2017
The Graphene Flagship, a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship of the European Commission, exhibited cutting-edge prototypes and demonstrators at Mobile World Congress, the world's largest gathering for the mobile industry.
Report on future FET Flagships
A report by the Future and Emerging Technologies Advisory Group (FETAG) brings recommendations for new research initiatives to be funded through the FET Flagship program. This scheme is part of the Excellent Science pillar of Horizon2020 and is currently providing support to the Graphene and the Human Brain Project flagships. A new flagship on Quantum Technology is also under preparation.
This is the cover page of the report. It is blue and represents Europe and the European stars.

Projects' news & stories
Is your FET research taking EFFECT?
High risk, long term, multidisciplinary and collaborative frontier research, laying the foundations for radically new, next generation technologies – this is the essence of the Future & Emerging Technologies (FET) programme. But how do you communicate efficiently on such high level science projects without losing your audience along the way of science? How do you achieve the outreach you have always dreamt of?
