Graphene Flagship announces new partners
Following its competitive call Graphene Flagship, one of the largest-ever European research initiatives, has just announced that it invited 66 new partners and thereby will double in size.
While most partners still are universities and research institutes, the share of companies, mainly SMEs, involved is increasing. This according to the Flagship is an indicator of the growing interest economic actors have in graphene. The partnership now includes more than 140 organisations from 23 countries.
The 66 new partners come from 19 countries, six of which are new to the consortium: Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary and Israel. They are said to add new capabilities to the scientific and technological scope of the flagship. In total the competitive call attracted 218 proposals, representing 738 organisations from 37 countries.
