Haydale will sponsor the Cambridge Graphene Festival, UK (5-6th November, 2015).
Haydale explains that the Cambridge Graphene Festival is a prime event for networking and learning more about the latest advances in commercialising graphene and related materials in sectors such as electronics, displays, energy storage, composite, packaging, aerospace & defence and automotive. The festival includes a program of events to be held mainly in Cambridge's new Graphene Building, with an exhibition of technology and tours of labs as well as a media event, conference and dinner at King's College.
Ray Gibbs, CEO of Haydale commented. “The Cambridge hub is one of the pre-eminent places to go for the highest quality science and application skills. As a leading technological solution provider to this rapidly evolving market sector, it made great sense to support this centre of excellence covering graphene and related nanomaterials. We believe the conferences and workshops at the Cambridge Graphene Festival will showcase the adoption and use of the graphene materials in real products. Haydale's functionalised graphene technology is already providing ground-breaking benefits to organisations involved with composite materials, conductive inks and next generation battery technology.”
Professor Andrea Ferrari, who will chair the conference and media event, added. “We are very much looking forward to an excellent set of meetings and to opening our new Graphene Building. It is clear that Cambridge is a major hub for graphene science and technology here in the UK. Application solutions involving graphene and related materials are now real and happening.”
