Graphene+ Enabled Smart Cities
November 19th, 2019
Graphene is set to play a crucial role in revolutionising the functionality of buildings and improving productivity in construction, infrastructure, energy and mobility.
Australian materials science researchers are acknowledged to be among the leaders in graphene research for large scale industrial applications, a factor that is enabling us to be a global leader in Smart City technologies.
The Graphene + Smart Cities Conference 2019 is an opportunity for leaders from every part of industry to participate in understanding and guiding the future of technology, innovation and manufacturing in Australia.
The invited panellists are experts in their fields. Each panel has been curated by the moderator to produce an interactive conversation and deliver valuable actionable insights. The intent is not to look over the horizon of technology development, but to tap into the influencing factors that provide a roadmap to the rapid commercialisation opportunities that will underpin the graphene industry in Australia.
International and local speakers will provide insights into the potential of graphene-enabled innovations including:
- Low-cost, large-scale sensing for the IoT
- Stronger, lightweight, low-cost concrete with less embedded carbon
- Single step water purification enabling universally available potable water
- Energy capture and conservation
Graphene is no longer a material locked in a lab. Its unique and powerful properties are already powering innovation in products and technologies as Graphene becomes integral to the strategic planning of some of the largest and most powerful corporations in the world.
Graphene + Smart Cities Conference 2019 will be a window on how the jobs of the future will be created and how graphene can help nations tackle the twin challenges of increasing populations and changes in climate.
