GF13 - Updating the Science and technology roadmap for graphene, related two-dimensional crystals, and hybrid systems

Motivation

A science and technology roadmap (STR) for graphene, related two-dimensional (2d) crystals, and hybrids, was developed in the Pilot Phase of the GRAPHENE Flagship. A synthesis of this document is available in the call document page. The STR targets an evolution in technology, with impacts and benefits reaching most areas of society. It outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this project.

The primary objective of the STM is to guide the community towards the development of products based on graphene, 2d crystals and hybrid systems. For simplicity we will refer to this new material platform as graphene and related materials and use the acronym GRM. These materials have a combination of properties that could make them key enablers in many application fields, generating new products that cannot be obtained with current technologies or materials. The creation of new disruptive technologies based on GRMs is conditional to reaching a variety of objectives and overcoming several challenges throughout the value chain, ranging from materials to components and systems.

The STR outlines the principal routes to develop the GRM knowledge base and the means of production and development of new devices, with the final aim to integrate GRMs into systems.
It is essential to keep the STR updated, monitoring the state of the art of the IP landscape, industrial trends, achievements and setbacks over the Flagship period.

The work is expected to be done in cooperation with the main institutions and authors who contributed to the existing STR. The applicants must have a proven track record in development and production of high-impact status-reports and future-outlooks for novel and emerging technologies.

Objectives

  • Develop a methodology for updating the existing STR every 2 years. This will require interaction with key stakeholders in EU and worldwide, IP landscape research, data collection and analysis. 
  • Implementing the first major STR update by the end of the ramp-up phase of the Flagship

Impacts

  • The STR is the most important document of the Flagship DOW. The updated STR will impact future expansion and funding of the Flagship, as well as direct industrial development of GRMs in EU and worldwide
