Research 2D-Tech

Image 1 of 2

Academic and industrial stakeholders have identified mutual areas of interest focusing on 2D material-based technology. These areas are grouped into three main research and innovation lines: multifunctional composites, sustainable energy and electronics. In addition, 2D-TECH has a fourth, more fundamental research and innovation line: emerging materials​.


R&I Multifunctional Composites

R&I Multifunctional Composites is performed by an interdisciplinary team of experts in materials science, polymer engineering, composite materials and modelling. The line is led by Vincenzo Palermo, who is also the Vice-Director of the Graphene Flagship. Vincenzo will be supported by Leif Asp, Brina Blinzler, Roland Kádár, and Xiaoyan Zhang who pursue research on graphene in bulk polymer materials including material synthesis, nano-composites processing, rheological characterization, covalent and non-covalent functionalization, multiscale modelling as input to composite materials processing and performance analysis.

R&I Sustainable Energy

R&I Sustainable Energy is led by Johan Liu who is one of the pioneers and world leaders in graphene-based cooling technology.

R&I Electronics

R&I Electronics is performed by experts in the field of 2D material-based electronics. The line will be led by Avgust Yurgens.

R&I Emerging Materials

R&I Emerging Materials is led by Timur Shegai.

Timur will be supported by Mikael Fogelström, an expert in modeling of transport properties of nanomaterials, Saroj Dash, experts in optical spectroscopy and quantum transport characterization of 2D materials, Floriana Lombardi with expertise on topological 2D materials, and Ermin Malic.
