Projects are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:

A broad portfolio of innovative two-dimensional materials (2DM), networks and multicomponent hetero-structures exhibiting new properties or complementary functionalities that will lead to breakthroughs in digital systems and devices.

Proposals should create the basis for the exploitation of most promising 2DM and developed 2DM technologies.

Proposals should develop high-quality 2DM and hetero-structures platforms by exploiting most promising emerging 2DM and/or discovering new ones, and combining them in functional systems and hetero-structures. This should be achieved by pushing the boundaries of growth, characterisation methods, deposition and layer-by-layer assembly of atomically thin crystals supported by multiscale theoretical modelling of materials and devices.

Multidisciplinary research and innovation activities should address all of the following:

Identification and demonstration of new properties and physical phenomena such as those based on the twist degree of freedom, and processes enabling new functionalities, and their implementation in proof-of-principle digital devices;
Development of new characterisation methods and of controlled, ultra clean and large-scale synthesis, fabrication methods and design of 2D materials and hetero-structures based on novel approaches e.g. Artificial Intelligence assisting material assembly and material simulation, robotics-based assembly, and advanced synthetic, preparation and growth methods combined with the help of modelling and simulation.
Proposals should build on or seek collaboration with existing projects and develop synergies with other relevant European, national or regional initiatives, funding programmes and platforms. In particular, projects are expected to develop synergies and relate to activities and outcomes of the projects selected under the other topics of ‘Graphene and 2D materials: Europe in the lead’.

Proposals should also cover the contribution to the governance and overall coordination of the Graphene Flagship initiative.

In this topic the integration of the gender dimension (sex and gender analysis) in research and innovation content is not a mandatory requirement.

Specific Topic Conditions:
Activities are expected to start at TRL 2 and achieve TRL 4 by the end of the project – see General Annex B.
