GRAPCHINA 2016 has been successfully held by CGIA in Qingdao from Sept 22 to Sept 24. At the same time, the "2016 International Advanced Carbon Materials Exposition"(IACM-EXPO) has made a full success.
This time, its central theme is “New power, new trend, and new development”, aiming to show the significant influence on future technology in our daily life, to indicate the cutting-edge trends of this new booming graphene industry, to explore the golden opportunities from existing success cases, and eventually promote the global graphene commercialization process.
During the conference, more than 40 Symposia gave every attendees a valuable opportunity to learn the new technologies, new products, new commercially-relevant results, and the trends of the graphene industry from suppliers to end users. The opening ceremony, held in the morning of the Septmber 22, was the most impressive activity. The most influential scientists presented their latest research and ideas in this morning, like Andre Geim from the University of Manchester, Humming Cheng from Institute of Metal Research, CAS, Rodney S. Ruoff from Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials, Korea, etc. The opening attracted over 2000 attendees gathering that made the plenary hall fully packed.
The other highlight of the conference is the several bilateral cooperation forums, aiming to build platforms for institutes or companies from both sides to have a better understanding on each other and hope to help establish connection orcooperation with good international partners. And Qingdao Special Forum, New Product Lauch had also caught everyone's eyes.
With the depth of graphene research and application, graphene is driving the transformation and upgrading of traditional manufacturing, cultivating new industry growth, and promoting the innovation and starting business. China Innovation Alliance of the Graphene Industry (CGIA) will continue to promote the development of graphene industry, and construct the solid bridge for the development of graphene.
