The 9th annual Recent Progress in Graphene and Two-dimensional Materials Research Conference (RPGR2017) follows on the success of the first eight RPGR conferences held in Seoul (2009), Singapore (2010), Suwon (2011), Beijing (2012), Tokyo (2013), Taipei (2014), Australia (2015) and Korea (2016). RPGR is the premier conference focused on graphene and other novel two-dimensional materials in the Asia-Pacific region.

The RPGR conference series began with a focus on the properties and applications of graphene, the first two-dimensional material to be isolated experimentally. In recent years the family of atomically thin two-dimensional materials has expanded to include boron nitride, layered transition-metal dichalcogenides, layered oxides, silicene, black phosphorus, and many more. Recognizing the strong intellectual ties between graphene and other atomically thin materials, the focus of RPGR has expanded to include “graphene and other two-dimensional materials”.

During RPGR2017, a Graphene Technology Transfer Fair (GTTF) will be organised for the first time where the Technology Transfer Offices (TTO) of the universities represented at RPGR will have the opportunity to present their intellectual property (IP) to the industry and entrepreneurs. The GTTF will create a unique opportunity to expose your IP to the industrial community at large, as well, as interact with other TTOs in Asia.
