Nokia Gets Grant to Develop Graphene, the 'World's Strongest Material'

Finnish multinational communications giant Nokia is set to develop graphene, a “super-material” that will be the strongest in the world, thanks to a $1.35 billion grant from the European Union.

The grant comes from the EU’s future and emerging technologies program (FET), whose mission is “to promote high risk research, offset by potential breakthrough with high technological or societal impact.”

Nokia is part of the Graphene Flagship Consortium, a group of industry leaders “looking to improve the world using graphene,” which is the name of the super-material being developed by the group.
