On Monday January 28th 2013 EU announced its two Flagship projects in the FET (Future Emerging Technologies) Programme.
The two winners are Graphene and the Human Brain Project. Both receive a billion Euro in the next ten years: One half directly from the EU and the rest from co-sponsorships.
The Graphene project which consists of 126 research groups from 76 different legal entities is coordinated by Chalmers University (Sweden), and its scientific program is split into 11 workpackages.
The Centre for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG) headed by Professor Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Nanotech is the proud participant in two of these workpackages: Associate Professor Peter Bøggild in Fast Electronics, and Professor Antti-Pekka Jauho in Sensors. The support from the Graphene Flagship to CNG/DTU Nanotech is estimated to amount up to 80 postdoctoral months, pending final negotiations. Appointments are expected to take place in early 2014.
