The GRAPHOSITE partner, HAYDALE Composites Solutions Ltd hosted the project review meeting (Q6) on the 19th February, at their facilities in Loughborough. This was an opportunity for the GRAPHOSITE partners not only to discuss their work and shared an overview of each WP achieved results, but also to visit HAYDALE facilities and learn more about the work they are doing.
GRAPHOSITE was invited to participate at the Nano-Carbon Enhanced Materials (NCEM) consortium meeting (joined to the Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing –AMAM- consortium meeting) on the 10th and 11th July 2019 at Wolfson College, Cambridge.
This consortium is run by Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd, one of the GRAPHOSITE partners who is in charge of Exploitation and Dissemination. The Nano-Carbon Enhanced Materials (NCEM) Consortium was put together in order to provide the consortium members a unique insight into nanocarbon materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes, facilitate the commercial uptake and bring together potential users with a shared interest to address commercialisation challenges.
Dr Sofia Sampethai from TWI, Dr Nithin Amirth Jayasree from BCC and Thomas Greaves from Haydale were invited to present at the meeting. There was an exhibition desk with information on the GRAPHOSITE project. It was a great opportunity for the GRAPHOSITE project to get the interest of other organisations in their activities and in the forthcoming Open Day.
The Composites World has published an article about the GRAPHOSITE project on their 29 March 2019 edition. This article can be found here
The JEC Group magazine has also published another article about the project in the April edition. You can read the article here.
The GRAPHOSITE Partner, TWI, has been behind this effort.
On the 22nd November 2018, the consortium of the GRAPHOSITE project met for the review of the first quarter of the project. This meeting took place at the offices TWI at Granta Park in Cambridge. Partners presented and discussed various tasks carried out since the launch of the project. The new project website and logo were also officially presented to the Project Officer.
The GRAPHOSITE project started on the 1st August 2018. The kick off Meeting was held on the 3rd September at the TWI offices in Cambridge, with the participation of the Project Monitoring Officer from Innovate UK, who gave an overview of the monitoring process. This was a good opportunity for the representatives from the participating organisations to meet and discuss the future work on the project.
