Participation at the 34. symposium on surface science 2022

From March 13-19 part of the project team was able to take part at the 34. symposium on surface science in St. Christoph am Arlberg, Austria. Markus Ostermann was able to present results from the Graphicing-project in an oral presentation under the title „Reduced graphene oxide:
From industrialisable production to de-icing application“.
The presentation including a live demonstration of a graphene-based heating panel was well received and an oppurtunity for scientific discussion on the topic of novel graphene-related systems.

Participation at the EUROMAT 2021 virtual conference

From September 13-17 our PhD student Dipl.-Ing. Markus Ostermann was able to take part at the EUROMAT 2021 virtual conference including an oral presentation with the topic „Production of few-layer graphene oxide via a novel electrochemical process“.
The conference was a great chance to present research results of the project and also get new ideas and input from other researchers.

Innovation Award Upper Austria 2020

GRAPHICING received a recognition from the jury and developments of project are part of the Upper-Austrian innovation successes 2020.

1st prize at tecnet-accent Innovation Prize 2020 award

First place went to Dr. Peter Velicsanyi with his project “Graphene Based Materials Development for Innovative Aeronautical Applications”. Peter Velicsanyi from CEST (Centre of Excellence for Electrochemistry and Surface Technology) has developed novel graphene-based materials with a wide range of potential applications. The research results could make an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in aircrafts. Novel, innovative aviation applications for instance are conceivable, by means of which the total weight of aircrafts could be reduced.
