Based at Technische Universität Dresden, Ali Shaygan Nia is a business developer for graphene-based coatings and composites for environmental applications such as air and water purification and anticorrosion coatings. Shaygan Nia has a PhD in polymer chemistry and more than six years’ experience developing graphene and 2D materials for composites and coatings. He also has experience on graphene-based product development and commercialisation by acting as application engineer at the Graphene Flagship's spin-off Sixonia Tech. Shaygan Nia now offers his thoughts on the current state of graphene in foam and coating applications.
On 1 February 2021, Patrik Johansson took on the position of Vice Director for the Graphene Flagship. Johansson will replace Vincenzo Palermo who served as Graphene Flagship Vice Director for three years.

On World Environment Day, we review how the Graphene Flagship project contributes to several UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our Associate Members and Partnering Projects make up the Graphene Flagship Partnering Division. These are other EU-funded projects, research initiatives in Member States, as well as SMEs and large industrial companies who work in close collaboration with the Graphene Flagship. This partnership greatly extends our reach in terms of technological and research expertise by fostering collaboration beyond our Core Partners. The Graphene Flagship Partnering Division has yielded some great results so far.
FLAG-ERA funds sixteen new Graphene Flagship Parterning Projects
Collaboration is at the heart of the Graphene Flagship. Top level researchers in academia, research and industry across Europe are encouraged to discuss strategies that will push graphene to the market.
Our new centralised platform offers courses for researchers to learn about managing results effectively, patenting technologies, creating start-ups and more
Following the decision of the Graphene Flagship Management Panel, 17 new Associated Members and 16 new Partnering Projects have joined the Graphene Flagship.
