Graphene Flagship is one of the European Commission’s research programmes funded on public-private partnerships. Alongside with leading European industries, they announced they will co-fund 11 new projects, which represents an investment of €92 million. The ‘Spearhead Projects’ will promote commercial uses of graphene by developing prototypes for solar panels, water infiltration systems and other graphene- enabled products. Among the main objectives, Graphene Flagship initiatives ‘’include achieving good health and wellbeing, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, and sustainable cities and communities, as well as improvements to industry innovation and infrastructure in Europe’’. These graphene- enabled prototypes should by commercialised by the end of 2023.
