The SPRING European project launched at a meeting held in San Sebastian

proyecto-springThe European Commission will be providing 3.5 million euros to fund the SPRING project, a new high-risk and high-impact research programme based on graphene. It is a four-year project, coordinated by the nanoGUNE cooperative research centre (CIC) and composed of IBM Research, Donostia International Physics Center, the University of Santiago de Compostela, Delft University of Technology and Oxford University, all of whom gathered in San Sebastian on 7 and 8 November for the launch.

The long-term aim is to develop an environmentally friendly platform made entirely of graphene, where the spins can be used to transport, store and process information.
