The main goal of the project is the developement of a new methodology to prepare graphene nanowires that will be applied in new technogies such as electronics, photonics and energy conversion and storage.

This is the recognition to the promising scientific career of Aurelio Mateo-Alonso, who has already been awarded with several prizes that include the "Young Researchers Award" from University of Trieste (Italy, 2007), "Eugen-Graetz Award" from the University of Friburg (Germany, 2009), "Young Researchers Award" from the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSE, 2011) and the "Young Researchers Award" from the Nanocarbons Division of the American Electrochemistry Society (2012).
