Nokia and the Graphene Consortium get a huge grant to develop the "strongest material ever tested"
Graphene is a class 2D structure measuring just one atom thick, yet it is the strongest material mankind has produced, 300 times tougher than steel, and is also one of the lightest and best intrinsic conductors as well.

Can you say "come to Papa's phone"? Nokia is leading the way for electronics companies in the Graphene Flagship Consortium, which consists of 73 other companies and academic institutions in various fields, and just received a one billion euros grant to research and develop graphene for practical applications. European Union for the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is the source of the grant, and Nokia's work with graphene is sure to get it a chunk of that change to research how can it utilize the material into its next generations of phones.

As per Henry Tirri, EVP, CTO of Nokia, and Tapani Ryhänen, Head of the Sensor and Material Technologies Laboratory for the Finns:


We can only imagine the possibilities Nokia's R&D labs, which have always stayed well-funded, even through the current tough times for the company, can come up with utiliziing a material like graphene, so we'll keep an eye on the developments with this grant.
