This is the third core project of the Graphene Flagship. It forms the fourth phase of the FET flagship and is characterized by a continued transition towards higher technology readiness levels, without jeopardizing our strong commitment to fundamental research. Compared to the second core project, this phase includes a substantial increase in the market-motivated technological spearhead projects. The broader fundamental and applied research themes are pursued by 15 work packages and supported by four work packages on innovation, industrialization, dissemination and management.
The EU-funded GrapheneCore3 project aims to secure a major role for Europe in the ongoing technological revolution, helping to bring graphene innovation out of the lab and into commercial applications by 2023. In its third core project, the Graphene Flagship gathers over 160 academic and industrial partners from 23 countries, all exploring different aspects of graphene and related materials. Bringing diverse competencies together, the Graphene Flagship facilitates cooperation between its partners, accelerating the timeline for industry acceptance of graphene technologies.
IMM Bologna is mainly involved in Work Package 14
Work Package 14 develops high-performance composites using graphene and layered materials that meet the high standards required by industrial sectors such as the aerospace, automotive and energy generation industries. We incorporate graphene and layered materials into various different matrix combinations, from thermoplastics and thermoset composites to elastomers and inorganic composites.
