Coordination Action for Graphene-Driven Revolutions in ICT and Beyond

Coordination Action for Graphene-Driven Revolutions in ICT and Beyond

Objective

This Coordination Action aims to prepare a European Flagship project focussed on "Graphene-Driven Revolutions in ICT and Beyond" (GRAPHENE). The overwhelming current focus on graphene, discovered by A.K. Geim and K. Novoselov in 2004, is driven by the considerable and tantalizing potential that this material offers in conventional as well as radically new fields of ICT applications.
Europe can play a key role in future graphene-based ICTs provided a long term strategy of transferring knowledge and intellectual property to technological applications is carried out in a coordinated, effective and organized fashion. GRAPHENE-CA will establish a comprehensive scientific and technological roadmap, by taking advantage of the activities of an existing nanoICT graphene working group, contributions of selected industrial partners and key scientists such as the Nobel Laureates A.K. Geim, K. Novoselov, A. Fert and K. von Klitzing. This roadmap will be the basis to develop the research agenda for the subsequent GRAPHENE flagship, which will cover electronics, spintronics, photonics, plasmonics and mechanics based on graphene, and supporting areas such as graphene production and graphene chemistry.
The CA will frame the development of a graphene flagship that is aimed to serve as a sustainable incubator of new branches of ICTs applications, rooted on European scientific excellence and interdisciplinarity (merging physics and chemistry with engineering communities), and providing Europe a strategic instrument and infrastructure for innovation in ICT-related science and applications.
