Graphene2012 - an international platform between science and industry

(Nanowerk News) Brussels (Belgium) will host the largest European Event in Graphene from 10th until 13th of April 2012 at Brussels44Center.
A plenary session with internationally renowned speakers, extensive thematic workshops in parallel, an important industrial exhibition carried out with the latest Graphene nanotrends for the future will be some of the features of this event.
Following the overwhelming success of Graphene 2011 in Bilbao (Spain), Phantoms Foundation announce the second edition of this great event that will gather the Graphene community, including researchers, industry, policymakers, investors and plans to be a reference in the Graphene World in the upcoming years.
The Graphene Flagship Pilot Action will take advantage of this international conference to co-organize a specific session in order to timely deliver to the European community the results of the Graphene Science and Technology Roadmap which will be presented to the European Commission and Member States to demonstrate the need for securing long term funding, coordinated through a new Graphene Alliance.
Tentative program of this particular session:
a. "Vision of Defragmentation of European Innovation for the next decade: The Graphene Alliance": Jari Kinaret
b. "The Graphene Science and Technology Roadmap": Vladimir Falko and Andrea Ferrari
c. Round Table: Luigi Colombo, Albert Fert, Francisco Guinea, Byung Hee Hong, Jari Kinaret, Klaus von Klitzing (to be confirmed), Kostya Novoselov (to be confirmed)
A complete list of well known speakers in the field will be announced until the end of the year. It is expected that the event will gather around 700 participants to talk about Graphene – the next big thing.
Graphene2012 will therefore serve as an international platform for communication between science and industry.
