New Materials for the 21st Century

Graphene, the single layer carbon based material, is transparent, flexible, and has excellent electronic properties. As it is called “the dream material,” graphene holds innumerable application potential. It is a material that still requires consistent research and at the same time it is a material that may hold the key to future electronics revolution with unlimited industrial value.

The 6th Edition European Graphene Forum will be organized in Milan - Italy from the 20 until the 22 October 2021. This event will cover the latest technology developments, applications, commercialization progress, end user requirements and challenges for Graphene and 2D Materials. Don't miss on this great opportunity to explore the graphene potential.

European Graphene Forum - EGF 2021 will feature:

  • Plenary sessions with internationally renowned speakers,
  • Industrial Sessions with focus on Graphene Commecialization,
  • Extensive parallel thematic workshops,
  • An International exhibition.
