We are excited to present a fantastic first wave of speakers for Carbonhagen 2019, and look forward to announce even more great scientists at the end of march.

Carbonhagen 2019 and the grand challenges

...is a two-day symposium on graphenecarbon nanotubes, and other two-dimensional/layered nanomaterials jointly organised by the Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen and Århus University. The symposium will cover mechanical, electronic, chemical and optical properties, device fabrication, integration and applications of the emerging family of 2D materials, to give the best possible picture of the state of the research field anno 2019, and its future direction. 

Grand challenges. This year we will direct the spotlight on grand challenges between now and a better future. We will showcase research that demonstrates how nanomaterials can make it happen. 


  • Top-class speakers, whose work show the directions of future research, and who are able to illuminate complex topics for us all.

  • Focus on challenges and open questions, not just past performance, and "finalised" research.

  • Intense and interactive. Single sessions, generous breaks, and low participation limit keeps the meeting intense and cosy. 

  • Low participation barrier. Low fees = low barriers for newcomers and students, convenient location in wonderful Copenhagen. 

  • Lunch, coffee, and other refreshments covered both days (Dinner is optional) to keep you fresh and happy.
