Sponsored by AGIA: Australian Graphene Industry Association

AGIA was formed in 2017 with the twin objectives of:

  • Acting as a catalyst for graphene-positive industry initiatives and investments including the establishment of a distributed centre-of-excellence for the commercialisation of graphene and graphene-related products.
  • Linking key government, academic and investment interests for the express purpose of increasing the volume and value of graphene-related innovation and commerce.

AGIA seeks to make the case to government, industry and academia for investment in a globally relevant centre for the commercialisation of graphene-enhanced or enabled products.

Achieving this will position Australia as a relevant participant in Industry 4.0, providing a stronger foundation for a vibrant advanced manufacturing industry while facilitating the connections necessary for the domestic industry to create and commercialise graphene-enhanced or enabled products.
