The GDR 3217 has been renewed in January 2017 and is now called "Graphene and Co".

Please visit our new website : www.graphene-and-co.org


The "Graphene and Nanotubes: science and applications" ("GNT") group is a national research group (GDR 3217) and an international coordination network (GDRI) cross-linking research on nanotubes and graphene.  Its scientific activity is based on three vital and emerging research themes, which develop knowledge of basic properties of individual nano-objects as well as their manipulation for developing devices linked to the industrial and socio-economical world.  The group gathers French, European and Canadian partners who have played a major role in the activities of the previous GDR, and to which are added scientists of international reputation working on graphene.

Millie Dresselhaus died earlier on Monday 20th February at the Mount Auburn Hospital surrounded by her family and other people she loved. Her funeral will be arranged for this Wednesday at MIT (by Jewish tradition this must happen very soon).

We are indebted so much to her for all she has done in the field of graphite and related materials  and how she has inspired researches worldwide with an amazing energy and vision during fifty years.

The plan at MIT is to celebrate Millie's life at a larger gathering in the future. Memorial sessions will be organized at the next Graphene conference 2017 at Bercelona next March at the Conference NT17 in June at Belo Horizonte in Brazil.

The story on the MIT website provides some broad information, in addition to MIT-specific details

A meeting, dedicated to the use of Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes in industrial applications will be organised on Tuesday April 4th 2017 at CNRS Meudon-Bellevue Campus, conveniently reachable (~ 20mins) by train from Gare de Montparnasse (Paris, France).

Scope :

The scope of this meeting is to disseminate the results of the research activity performed within the   EU/Japan funded IRENA project, Indium REplaced by Single Walled Carbon NAnotube Thin Films, briefly described in the attached flyer. The goal is to bring together academic researchers with engineers, and industrial decision makers already using, planning to use or simply interested in implementing Single Wall Carbon Nanotubes in their technologies and products. A number of leading European and Japanese companies already producing and selling Single Walled Carbon Nanotube based products have already announced their participation.

You are cordially invited to join this event. Should you be interested to participate, we simply ask you to contact us by e-mail. A program and registration form will be e-mailed within the next two weeks. Please forward this mail to any other members of your organization and colleagues who might be interested.
