The Graphene Flagship recently launched an Airbus-Backed Project for graphene-based thermoelectric ice protection systems. Now, Versarien announced that it has been selected to participate in that project.
The Project, which is categorized by the Graphene Flagship as a “Spearhead”, large-scale commercialization project, aims to develop graphene-based thermoelectric ice protection systems and to advance the technology readiness level of graphene in these systems.
To fund Versarien’s participation in the Project it has received approval for a €350,000 grant from the Graphene Flagship.
Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien, commented: “We are very pleased to be working with Airbus on this key Graphene Flagship project and to be receiving funding from the Graphene Flagship to facilitate it. This is another example of Versarien’s graphene technology being deployed in the aerospace sector, one where it has the potential to add significant value. We look forward to starting work on this project in the New Year and reporting on its progress and those of our many other commercialization projects in due course.”
