15 Sep Graphene Conference 2019
Carbon Waters invited to the European Graphene Conference in Rome
The world’s leading experts in graphene came together last June in Rome for the “Graphene Conference”. A major recognition for Carbon Waters: our company was invited by the Organising Committee to present its work.
At the event, Julia Hof, our Process Manager, was able to get in contact with numerous industrial players and researchers. Indeed, this conference consisted of two parts: scientific lectures and the industrial forum.
Since 2011, some 5,700 people from 57 countries took part in this event. These participants got to see 2,400 scientific posters, listen to 1,400 speakers and meet 440 exhibitors.
For this session, a special atmosphere reigned within the former university of the Vatican at this event with a focus on the future of graphene and materials.
Visibility that is becoming global
This four-day conference taught me a tremendous amount, explains Julia. I focused on application-oriented presentations and was able gain a state-of-the-art overview of graphene.
This area is growing fast and it will not be long before we start to see impacting products with graphene. I realised that it has been used in a broad range of sectors, from shoes to Zero-G flying!”
Julia introduced Carbon Waters to industrial players, researchers and PhD students during a fifteen minute presentation. “Many of them expressed their interest.
This invitation and the reactions of the audience are an indication of the visibility of Carbon Waters at international level among both SMEs and major industrial groups. It’s very encouraging!”
The next edition of the “Graphene Conference” will be held in Grenoble from 2nd to 5th June 2020.
