Graphene Week is an annual conference hosted by the Graphene Flagship, which features global leaders and experts in research and development of technologies based on graphene and related materials. The event offered participants a wide-ranging scientific programme, as well as technological exhibitions, and innovation sessions focusing directly on graphene technologies for real-world applications.

Attendees at Dr Pérez-Cabero’s talk learnt how COST Actions strengthen the scientific community through collaboration and access to networking and training opportunities, participants also heard about COST’s commitment to inclusiveness and participation. Dr Pérez-Cabero used the Open Forum as an opportunity to invite researchers from the Graphene Flagship to join COST initiatives such as training schools, short-term scientific missions and workshops. 

Dr Pérez-Cabero said of the event, “At COST we support international, interdisciplinary research networks by encouraging greater participation within the scientific community. Graphene Week is a fantastic place for researchers interested in the field to come together, share ideas and start collaborating with one another, not just for a few days, but for many years to come.”
