Emerging Community of GraphCAT

The latest vision of the GraphCAT group is to make Catalonia a world reference in the development of advanced graphene applications. The aim of GraphCAT is to strengthen and accelerate the transfer of graphene-based technology to Catalan industry (existing or emerging) with a focus on strategic industrial sectors that can benefit from integrated graphene technologies (biomedicine, energy, graphene and compound production, optoelectronics), offering a major competitive advantage in the global market.

GraphCAT's mission is to create a community in Catalonia that generates synergies which drive the development and technological innovation of graphene and graphene-based technologies; to grow and strengthen links between the international community of graphene researchers and local industries to develop and apply graphene technologies; to facilitate technology transfer to existing industries and to support the creation of new industries through technological spin-offs and the training of entrepreneurs.
