Graphene Academic Council

Graphene Academic Council  (GAC) is a consortium of eight universities and academic intuitions in a ​position of leadership in graphene research. In May 2019, the GAC members signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) alongside NGA to come together in recognition of the importance of graphene science, engineering and technology and explore collaborative opportunities to further the scientific understanding of graphene as well as expediting the commercialization of graphene for the future economic well-being of the nation.

The unified graphene academic council brings some of the most stellar universities in the United States together under one umbrella with a dedicated focus on graphene research
