About Graphene2D

Since its discovery in 2004, graphene, the 2D form of carbon, has shown enormous versatility and potential to fuel technological advancement across many industry segments. Among these are energy storage, electronics, smart textiles, sensors, medical devices, bio interfaces, water purification, structural materials, composites and many more. Graphene and graphene-like materials will eventually find its way into almost every field and will affect many facets of human life. There is significant growth potential for industries that have yet to consider the use of graphene and to which graphene and graphene-like materials could bring transformative, unique solutions and add significant value.  By convening the current and future stakeholders in the graphene market — graphene entrepreneurs, organizations, suppliers, developers, investors, venture capitalists and government agencies — Graphene2D aims not only to accelerate the commercialization of graphene, but to create cross-industry momentum while helping to identify untapped industry and market segments prime for graphene integration. Graphene2D offers a range of networking and information initiatives, including conferences, expos and workshops designed to facilitate the engagement between the diverse stakeholders in the graphene field and promote cross-disciplinary dialogue, collaboration, and partnerships. Graphene2D has assembled an experienced team to implement its mission. Our team’s expertise includes not only scientific and practical knowledge of the graphene 2D industry, but encompasses supply chain and business development arenas, as well as extensive experience in large scale international tradeshow exhibitions, news and digital media, and government lobbying and advocacy for near term technologies. We invite you to join the National Graphene2D Association and become a driving force behind the commercialization of graphene and graphene-like materials. Visit our membership page for more.
