Graphene discovery and the European Graphene Flagship Project



Following the recent adhesion of Tetra Pak to the Graphene Flagship, a research initiative funded by the European Commission to gather all the industrial and academic realities interested on the research regarding Graphene, Tetra Pak offers an opportunity to discover and explore the possible developments related to Graphene.

Organized at the Church of San Carlo (Via San Carlo, Modena), the open event will present to the participants this new technology through the contributions of academic and industrial experts.

Professor Konstantin Novoselov, 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of graphene and currently professor at the University of Manchester, will be the guest of honor for the day.
