Taking Critical Steps Towards Graphene Commericlaisation In Europe
As capabilities for reliably producing and processing graphene advance, industries are eager to determine their own supply chain solutions, integrate graphene with manufacturing equipment and understand the business case for applications across electronics, energy storage, composites, biomedical and barriers.
The solution for the successful commercialisation of graphene lies in the standardisation of scalable supply, tailoring properties through defect engineering and substrate choice and identifying profitable applications that leverage graphene's unique properties. With this understanding, industry can confidently invest in industrialisation and deliver graphene devices and solutions in the near future.
DRIVING GRAPHENE PROGRESS THROUGH BOTH SCIENTIFIC AND COMMERCIAL FORCES
Graphene Supply, Application & Commercialisation 2014 follows the huge success of the 2013 summits in London and California, which gained industry recognition for their delivery of commercial success stories, from tennis rackets to filters. This year the event has partnered for the first time with University of Manchester, the birthplace of graphene, with leaders from industry, research and academia coming together at the global hub for its development to ensure progress is driven by both scientific and commercial forces.
Graphene Supply, Application & Commercialisation 2014 is focused upon making commercial scale graphene application an industrial reality through the delivery of 20+ exclusive case studies over two days, covering:
- APPLICATION PROGRESS LANDMARKS: Revealing the status of the very latest breakthrough graphene applications in electronics, aerospace, energy storage,sensors, coatings and biomedical applications
- QUALITY: Delivering reliable production methods of high, uniform quality and unique material properties to meet requirements for different commercial applications
- SUPPLY SCALABILITY: Hearing how leading producers are planning to supply graphene at the right quality, quantity and cost to make mass application commercially feasible using CVD and exfoliation
- PROCESSABILITY: Examining success stories on integration with manufacturing equipment to enable affordable characterisation and tailoring of properties
- INTEGRATION: Leveraging defect engineering, optimising substrate choices and integrating graphene with manufacturing processes to practically bridge the gap between production and commercialisation
- INVESTORS: Determining commercial expectations in regards to graphene applications to assess what investors need from the science community to justify further commitment
- OTHER 2D MATERIALS: Analysing the role of other 2D materials alongside or as a replacement of graphene to optimise material selection for each application
WHAT'S NEW FOR 2014:
The agenda this year has been re-researched and re-developed to include only the very latest and hottest learning issues in the ever changing...
...graphene commercialisation landscape. Collaborating this year with the National Graphene Institute at the University Of Manchester, this year's summit is set to be the platform of the year for taking graphene one step closer to commercialisation in the most industry led event in the series yet.
What's new this year at the Graphene Supply, Application & Commercialisation summit?
- LOCATED AT THE BIRTHPLACE OF GRAPHENE : This year, we are working in collaboration with Manchester University to combine the knowledge and contacts of London Business Conferences with those of the National Graphene Institute to deliver an even bigger, more content packed agenda for 2014. Following the Nobel Prize winning discovery of graphene at the University of Manchester and investment in the National Graphene Institute, Manchester is now recognised as a global hub for graphene development.
- UNIQUE FOCUS ON THE SUPPLY OF HIGH QUALITY GRAPHENE : Presentations this year will focus not only on the latest application success stories, but will also reveal solutions to one of the most critical hurdles in graphene integration - the cost, quality and scalability of supply.
- REVEALING ADVANCES IN PROCESSABILITY AND INTEGRATION IN MANUFACTURING: Once functional feasibility and supply have been confirmed, the next critical step is integration and processing. As industry is now moving closer to this stage, this year we have included a brand new focus on how to successfully integrate graphene with manufacturing equipment and how to tailor material properties through defect engineering and substrate choices to reduce the time and costs associated with industrialisation.
- BRAND NEW APPLICATIONS SHOWCASE: A great deal of progress has been made in the past 12 months and this year, the congress will be hosting industry pioneering end users who will be delivering new and exclusive case studies across flexible touch screens, transistors, sensors, composites, energy storage, coatings, biomedical and thermal dissipation.
- INVESTORS CRITERIA: Whilst science is the engine behind graphene commercialisation, capital investment in graphene R&D and application is of course critical to progress. This year, a keynote panel will determine the criteria of investors in regards to graphene applications to find out what they need from the science community to justify further investment.
- COMPARING GRAPHENE TO EXISTING AND FUTURE MATERIAL COMPETITORS : Application opportunities for both graphene protagonists and industry could be created through identifying uses for graphene in combination with other 2D materials. Therefore we will be hosting a brand new session this year on the success of other 2D materials to optimise material selection for each application.
