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.

Principal investigators

The centre's research organisation consists of the four areas multifunctional composites, sustainable energy, electronics and emerging materials.

Emerging Materials is aiming at exploiting the full potential of 2D materials (beyond graphene) and preparing for their future industrialization.

To drive progress in the four R&I lines, 2D-TECH will utilise and build upon knowledge and expertise existing at Chalmers and at industrial stakeholders. The work in the center will create synergy effects and offer a long-term perspective to establish 2D material-based technology in Sweden.


Here we ​list all members except the Principal Investigators that were listed above.

SIO grafen

Calls within SIO Grafen shall generate projects carried out in collaboration between different partners.

Myfab access (clean room access)

Myfab invites you to a new program​, offering free access to our cleanroom nanotechnology facilities. The aim is to give new user groups practical experience of Myfab.

Almi verifieringsmedel

Nya innovativa idéer innebär många gånger större risker än normala affärsidéer. Ofta behöver man undersöka, testa och verifiera olika hypoteser för att se om idén håller. Almis verifieringsmedel används för att få svar på kritiska frågor och därmed minska risken i utvecklingen av affärsidén.

VGR nystartade innovativa företag

Nystartade teknik- och kunskapsbaserade företag kan söka såddfinansiering​ för att utveckla en produkt, tjänst eller ett koncept.

VGR FoU-kort

Västra Götalandsregionen erbjuder stöd till forskningsprojekt som ska hjälpa företag att ta fram ny vetenskaplig kunskap och kompetens för att utveckla tjänster, varor och processer.

VGR konsultcheckar

Konsultchecken ska stärka och förnya företaget inom områden där man saknar eller har bristande kompetens. Insatsen ska vara avgränsad i tid och bidra till att utveckla företaget.


Syftet med denna utlysning är att underlätta deltagandet för västsvenska aktörer att delta i EU:s forsknings- och innovationsprogram.
