The ultimate vision of the GraphCAT Community is to establish Catalonia as an international reference in graphene research, development and innovation, with multiple local industries deriving strong competitive advantage in the global marketplace through the integration of proprietary graphene technologies into their products and services.
GraphCAT will achieve this by cultivating a strong community of international graphene researchers, practitioners and businesses, bringing their combined expertise to the development of cutting-edge graphene technologies for and by Catalan industry. It will also provide support for the transfer of technology to industry, as well as the creation of spin-off companies.
Specifically, it will do so through GraphCAT projects, led by Community members and co-funded through the Catalan regional research and innovation strategy for smart specialisation, RIS3CAT.



AMO’s mission as a non-profit SME is to bridge the gap between university research and industrial application. In joint projects and in bilateral cooperation, research and development results are transferred to industry for the preservation and creation of jobs. The potential of nanotechnology is thus tapped in fields of application such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. AMO operates a state-of-the-art 400 m² clean room under the direction of Prof. Lemme and offers a rang of services from consulting to prototype development.
