simpleshow foundation Explains Graphene (some more ;)
About five years ago, we created a simpleshow foundation clip that explained Graphene, the first two-dimensional material. You can watch it here and get acquainted with our superhero Mr G.
This video was the first time we collaborated with the Graphene Flagship, a joint of researchers looking into how Graphene can be used. Right now, with a funding of €1 billion by the European Union, it is the biggest research initiative ever.
“It was most suitable to describe our particular project – the story of graphene with its explosive past and, hopefully, bright and dynamic future. Its impressive to see the ease with which simpleshow explained the most complex physical phenomena and most challenging future applications, some of which don’t even exist.” Sir Prof. Konstantin Novoselov FRS, Nobel prize winner in physics 2010
As you can see, our work with the Graphene Flagship was praised, so naturally we were happy to be able to support them again. Well, we brushed up on Mr G and this time we created not one, but three videos, explaining some of the different uses for Graphene. If you follow us on Facebook, you might have stumbled across a few posts about this new project already.
Since we are no scientific experts but have close connections to members of the Graphene Flagship, we received incredible help from researchers. Prof Kostas Kostarelos from the University of Manchester advised us on our video about Graphene’s application in biomedicine.
and Vincenzo Palermo from CNR gave us insight into the automotive applications of Graphene.
Not only are we extremely proud of our videos, the Graphene Flagship was very happy with our work, too! As part of the Graphene Zone on this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona our videos were revealed.
We are amazed by all the possibilities that Graphene offers and love to be a part of spreading the knowledge. Mr G holds the key to the future and we look forward to coming projects in which we can explain it some more.
