TWI one of the partners of the GRAPHOSITE project, has been performing mechanical testing of composite specimens in order to validate the graphene sensors. More information on the testing can be found at the following link.

The GRAPHOSITE project consortium met on the 19th May 2020, for the reviewing of the 7th quarter of the project. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this meeting was held online. This was an opportunity for all Project Partners to discuss the progress of the project and share an overview of each work package achieved results, to the Project Officer.

The GRAPHOSITE Project Partners are pleased to announce their 2nd Open Day Workshop, which is taking place in Cambridge on the 17 November 2020. The GRAPHOSITE Open Day Workshop and Exhibition will be a great opportunity to learn about the GRAPHOSITE project results, meet their partners and learn about their products and services.

Participation is free, but registration is required. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to: info@graphosite.co.uk

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.

For consecutive year, GRAPHOSITE was invited to participate in the UltraMAT Open Day 2020 Workshop. The UltraMAT (www.ultramat.co.uk) is also an Innovate UK funded project, where Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd. (CNT) is one of its partners in charge of Exploitation and Dissemination.

The event took place at Murray Edwards College in Cambridge on the 30th of January. The GRAPHOSITE Project had an exhibition desk and James Essien, Project Leader from TWI gave a presentation about the GRAPHOSITE project and TWI activities. Dr Sofia Sampethai, who was formerly leading the GRAPHOSITE project, gave also a talk about her new involvement in other TWI projects.

This was a great opportunity for the GRAPHOSITE project to get the interest of other organisations in their activities.

 

 

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 GRAPHOSITE Project is delighted to announce their 1st Open Day Workshop at Robinson College in Cambridge on the 20th November 2019. This will be a great opportunity to meet the GRAPHOSITE partners, learn about their products, services and the new developments of this project. We have confirmed participation from guests coming from the following organisations: BAE Systems, BT, Schlumberger Cambridge Research, Lucideon, GoodFellow, ARUP, Bitrez Limited, BSI, MBDA UK Ltd. Rolls Royce, Prysmian Group, Versarien, Bridon Bekaert Ropes Group, Cranfield University, University of Cambridge, UCL and University of Surrey.

Participation is free, but registration is required. If you are interested in attending, you could download the registration form from here or request it from info@graphosite.co.uk
