Graphene Alliance for Sustainable Multifunctional Materials to Tackle Environmental Challenges

GIANCE presents creative solutions to environmental challenges by establishing a comprehensive and industry-driven platform. This platform aims to design, develop, and produce the next generation of affordable, eco-friendly, lightweight, and recyclable materials based on graphene and related substances (GRM). These materials include multifunctional composites, coatings, foams, and membranes (GRM-bM) with enhanced properties, such as thermal, mechanical, and chemical features.

These innovations functionalities also improve functionalities like wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical and fire resistance, hardness, impact resistance, high-temperature resistance, and structural health monitoring. Additionally, GIANCE focuses on enabling hydrogen storage. The project strives to advance manufacturing processes, enhance synthesis and stability, and minimize environmental impact.

The GRM-bM and manufacturing capabilities developed by GIANCE will foster strong connections with end-users, enabling the qualification and development of commercial propositions to high Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs). GIANCE aims to demonstrate and validate the effectiveness of GRM-enabled products through 11 use cases, influencing future technologies across various sectors, including automotive, aerospace, energy (hydrogen economy), and water treatment.


GIANCE’s revolutionary materials solutions project pioneer novel, scalable GRM-bM materials, boosting eco-designed manufacturing processes. This positions the EU as a global GRM-bM leader, fostering innovation and competitiveness.

Embracing a circular economy, the project enhances recyclability, achieves significant weight reduction in automotive applications, and improves multifunctional performance.

Innovations in manufacturing, strategic autonomy, and competitiveness are bolstered, while a sustainable supply chain is prioritized.
