Equally exciting was a recent article in Financial Times, featuring information on Graphenea and messages from our CEO Jesus de la Fuente. The main focus of the article is the EU research and development (R&D) budget. According to FT, EU should be spending more on innovation. Graphene is featured in the article as one of the EU's key innovation advantages, with Graphenea taking the spotlight. To quote:
Both Jesus and Professor Andrea Ferrari of the Cambridge Graphene Centre agreed that there is a long way to walk before graphene applications go mainstream, and that the EU must provide relentless investment in research if it intends to be a leader of the graphene industry.
You can meet Jesus and our Business Development Director Iñigo Charola, as well as many other business leaders, at the Graphene Supply, Application, and Commercialisation summit in Manchester next week (June 12-13). The meeting will be hosted by the University of Manchester National Graphene Institute. Topics will span the entire graphene device production chain, from supply, to development, to integration. See you there!
