A new initiative was announced in the framework of the NOVUM Festival in Barcelona: “Barcelona Graphene Accelerator” (BGA), which intends to accelerate graphene and 2D-material based technologies in their path to market. 

The BGA's first phase will focus on the acceleration of photonic technologies, and therefore will be led by ICFO. The initiative will be dedicated to the development and eventual commercialization of devices based on graphene and graphene materials for applications in the fields of optoelectronics, nanoelectronics, robotics, security, sensors, devices for smart-cities, biotech and health, and Wearables, among others.The Graphene Accelerator initiative supports the development of graphene-based technologies as part of a strategy to encourage knowledge-based economic growth in the city. Barcelona aims to host future high-tech companies that sell products and services derived from or inspired by the revolution of graphene and 2D materials.
