This workshop aims to bring together all players in the value chain to define demonstrator projects for the application of Graphene and other 2D Materials to Composites.
- Agree composite applications and potential products enabled by graphene and/or other 2D materials that can be developed to a commercial scale
- Map out the supply chain required to deliver composite demonstrator projects and confirm the UK capability and capacity to enter into early vendor initiatives
- Produce a list of potential composite demonstrator projects and potential collaborators.
Who should attend:
- OEMs, tier 1s, technology developers, end-users, manufacturers, product designers, product managers, material suppliers and integrators.
