On 27 October 2014, FLAG-ERA organises a networking event for potential applicants to the joint transnational call (JTC). This event will take place from 14h00 to 18h00 during the TNT2014 Conference (Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference) in Barcelona and focuses on graphene research:
It includes a presentation on the Graphene Flagship, on FLAG-ERA and on the JTC, please find the programme attached. Interested researchers can participate in the event, which is free of charge (they do not have to be registered for the TNT Conference). Researchers also have the possibility to submit a short presentation to present their research and can show a poster as well.
The objectives of this event are hence to give information about the FLAG-ERA JTC with a focus on graphene to potential applicants, and to allow for networking, exchanges of ideas and consortium building.
Title: FLAG-ERA Graphene Networking Event – Barcelona, October 27, 14h – 18h
Objective: To give information about the FLAG-ERA Joint Transnational Call (JTC) in synergy with the Graphene Flagship to potential applicants, and to allow for networking, exchanges of ideas and consortium building.
Target audience: researchers, scientists working in the field of graphene
Summary: On 27 October 2014, FLAG-ERA organises a networking event for potential applicants to the upcoming Joint Transnational Call (JTC).This event will take place from 14h00 to 18h00 during the TNT conference in Barcelona and focuses on graphene research:
Programme: The event is organized in three different modules : the full programme can be viewed here:
- a presentation from FLAG-ERA about the JTC and a presentation from the Graphene Flagshipa
- session of flash presentations (4 min, 2 slides max) where researchers present their ideas for participating in JTC and identify the partner expertise they are looking for
- area for posters (for the people presenting the flash presentation), where stakeholders can discuss their ideas in a relaxed environment.
Registration: Interested researchers can participate in the event, which is free of charge (you do not have to be registered for the TNT Conference). To register for the event:
Flash presentations (4 min, 2 slides max) can be submitted until 20 October via this link:

Background: FLAG-ERA is a FP7 ERA-NET that gathers most regional and national funding organisations (NRFOs) in Europe with the goal of supporting the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagship concept and more specifically, the FET Flagship initiatives Graphene and Human Brain Project (HBP). FLAG-ERA will launch a joint transnational call (JTC) enabling researchers from different countries to propose joint contributions to the Flagships. In order to encourage and facilitate the participation in the JTC, FLAG-ERA organises networking events for stakeholders from basic and applied research and innovation.
The FLAG-ERA Graphene Networking Event intents to bring together stakeholders in the area of graphene, taking advantage of the presence of a considerable group of researchers, industry and the Graphene Flagship representatives in the TNT conference.
