2D material-based technology for industrial applications (2D-TECH)

The main goal of 2D-TECH is to establish an internationally visible and competitive Swedish hub for excellent 2D materials research and technological innovation. We will bring together key players from Swedish industry and leading 2D material researchers and will establish close, multi-disciplinary and long-term collaborations.

Expected results and effects
2D-TECH will address concrete technological needs of Swedish industry, in particular focusing on automotive, aerospace, and packaging sectors. We will pave the way toward 2D-material-based technology with novel products that will have impact on every-day life. This includes among others food packaging with 2D materials as ultrathin gas barriers, mobile phones and laptops with 2D materials as ultraefficient heat spreaders as well as cars and airplanes with 2D materials as multi-functional composites.

Planned approach and implementation
The research within 2D-TECH will be performed within four research and innovation lines including:
- multifunctional Composites
- sustainable energy
- electronics
- emerging materials.

In the first phase (2020-2022), we will start 15 projects addressing concrete technological needs from our industrial partners. In the second phase (2023-2024), we will adjust the research program based on an internal review taking into acccount potentially changed technological needs and new breakthroughs in the 2D material research.
