Farewell to the Graphene Flagship

On 8 December 2015, I shall cease working for the University of Cambridge and Graphene Flagship. I will then return full-time to freelance journalism, science writing and related communications consultancy.

It has been a pleasure working with materials scientists and others from across Europe, sharing with the public, policymakers, industrialists and other stakeholders the many achievements of the flagship in the development of graphene and related two-dimensional materials.

The Graphene Flagship is a jolly good thing, and excellent value for EU taxpayers’ money. Disruptive technologies require extensive support if they are to be exploited fully and efficiently, and this is exactly what the Graphene Flagship is doing.

In addition to the many research scientists, engineers and commercial companies with whom I have collaborated during the past year and a half, I would like to pay tribute to my esteemed colleagues Thomas Skordas, Wide Hogenhout, Carla Moris and the rest of the Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship team at the European Commission in Brussels.

I am open to journalistic and other freelance commissions. See here for contact details.
