      Nokia (NOK) and a slew of academic/business partners have received a 10-year, €1B ($1.36B) EU grant to research and commercialize graphene, an ultra-thin structure said to have "a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel," and which could potentially have a variety of electronics applications. A Nokia R&D exec compares graphene's importance to that of silicon and cheap iron. Hyperbole? We should have a better idea within a decade.

      From BGR-

      2:25 PMNokia (NOK) this week made a somewhat under-the-radar announcement that could nevertheless pay out major dividends for the future of the tech industry. Via Tom’s Hardware, Nokia and the Graphene Flagship Consortium this week won a grant of €1 billion ($1.35 billion USD) to develop graphene, a two-dimensional “super-material” that measures just one atom thick and is described by Nokia as the “strongest material ever tested, having a breaking strength 300 times greater than steel.”
