Founded by Vittorio Pellegrini, director at Graphene Flagship partner Graphene Labs - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), Bedimensional is one of the start-ups created thanks to the innovative environment of the Graphene Flagship European project.

Now, Italian 'Pellan Group,' specialised in groundbreaking technical materials, will boost the growth of Bedimensional investing €18 million to promote their main goal - discover new applications of graphene and related materials in consumer products.

Bedimensional is an Associated Member of the Graphene Flagship, and is part of a network of companies associated to the Graphene Flagship developing new solutions in the field of composites for energy harvest and storage, such as batteries, super capacitors and solar cells, as well as foster the development of new composite materials, some of which are already available on the market.

The 4000m2 facilities, of which 3000m2 will be exclusively dedicated to the production of graphene and related materials and new composites, and over 500m2 will be devoted to a joint research lab with IIT.

This investment will help IIT and Bedimensional develop new applications in the energy sector, a research area that is key for the future of the company.

Bedimensional was founded in 2016 and is an example of the technology transfer model implemented by both IIT and the Graphene Flagship.
