Graphene and related materials are expected to revolutionise the fields in which they are applied, and they have the potential to become the materials of the 21st century. In 2015 the Graphene Flagship roadmap identified eleven science and technology themes: fundamental science, health and environment, production, electronic devices, spintronics, photonics and optoelectronics, sensors, flexible electronics, energy conversion and storage, composite materials, and biomedical devices.
In this context Graphene Labs are committed to conduct research projects with a technology transfer perspective, in order to foster industrial innovation at national and international level.
In particular, we signed several research agreement with many companies for finding useful applications in different sectors ranging from photovoltaics and illumination to body protection, low-voltage copper cables, carbon fibers and composites. We also closely collaborate with SMEs to develop and test new solutions for the market. In general, we aim at being a shared facility for the Italian manufacturing firms interested in incorporating graphene and other two-dimensional crystals into existing composites and products.
After 3 years of activity we succeeded in realizing new products and prototypes, such as a graphene motorbike helmet (in collaboration with Momodesign), sole shoes with graphene (in collaboration with Fadel), high quality graphene and other 2-dimensional material’s inks and powder, conductive paper and tissue, 3d printed wires.
