KEP ITALY: final conference of GRAPHSENS project in Novi Sad
The final conference of the project “Graphene-based components and flexible electronic/sensing devices - GRAPHSENS”, was held at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia on 3 March. The event was attended by the key personnel of the project partners and by invited speakers involved in graphene research in Serbia and the EU.
GRAPHSENS aims at developing new graphene-based hybrid sensors for the detection of various environmental pollutants as a research platform for the transfer of best European practices from the Laboratory for Nanostructure Epitaxy and Spintronics on Silicon (L‑NESS), Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy to the University of Novi Sad (UNS), Serbia. This project is co-financed by the CEI Know-how Exchange Programme through the CEI Fund at the EBRD with 30,228 EUR.
The final conference of the project focused on the emerging technologies of flexible electronic devices for sensing applications. Researches from L‑NESS and UNS delivered presentations outlining the main results obtained during the implementation of GRAPHSENS. The conference also featured invited speakers from the Faculty of Physical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, and the Institute of Chemistry, Technology and Metallurgy, all at the University of Belgrade and the Biosense Institute in Novi Sad, Serbia, and at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava, Slovakia. Discussions focused on the future goals and possible collaborations between the EU and Serbian research institutions active in the field of graphene research.
The final event was deemed to be successful. It established personal contacts and promoted expertise of the involved teams. It also facilitated knowledge transfer at national, regional and international level.
