Disruptive technologies are usually characterised by universal, versatile applications that change many aspects of our lives simultaneously, penetrating every corner of our existence. In order to become disruptive, a new technology needs to offer orders of magnitude of improvements compared to existing industry standards. Moreover, the more universal the technology, the better chances it has for broad-based success.

The Graphene Flagship has brought together universities, research centres and companies from most European Countries. At the end of the ramp-up phase, significant progress has been made in taking graphene, related layered materials and hybrid systems from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries. I will overview the progress done thus far and the future roadmap.

The speaker: Andrea Ferrari is Professor of Nanotechnology at Cambridge University as well as head of the Nanomaterials and Spectroscopy group at the Department of Engineering and Nanoscience. He is the founding Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre and a Fellow of Pembroke College. A Fellow of the American Physical Society and Chairman of the Executive Board of the EU Graphene Flagship, Ferrari also holds the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.
