European Graphene Forum - EGF 2016

New Materials for the 21st Century


Graphene, the single layer carbon based material, is transparent, flexible, and has excellent electronic properties. As it is called “the dream material,” graphene holds innumerable application potential. It is a material that still requires consistent research and at the same time it is a material that may hold the key to future electronics revolution with unlimited industrial value.


The 2nd Edition European Graphene Forum will be organized in Paris (France) from the 1st until the 3rd of June 2016. This event will cover the latest technology developments, applications, commercialization progress, end user requirements and challenges for Graphene and 2D Materials. Don't miss on this great opportunity to explore the graphene potential.


This event will be co-located with 2nd Nanotech France 2016 annual conference and Exhibition and NanoMetrology France International conference.

European Graphene Forum - EGF 2016 will feature:

  • Plenary sessions with internationally renowned speakers,
  • Industrial Sessions with focus on Graphene Commecialization,
  • Extensive parallel thematic workshops,
  • An International exhibition co-located with Nanotech France 2016 and NanoMetrpology France conference.
  • Brokerage event
