27-28 Nov 2020: Are you ready for the Researchers' Night in Catalonia?

Many of the activities confirmed for the event, which will take place on November 27-28, 2020, can already be found on the website of the Researchers' Night in Catalonia. The programme includes both online and face-to-face activities organized by more than 50 entities throughout Catalonia. The ICMAB will collaborate in some of the activities programmed. Will you join us?
Nov 11, 2020

The European Researcher's Night is a public event dedicated to the dissemination of science that is held every year in more than 300 cities in 30 countries of Europe at the same time. Its aim is to bring research and its protagonists closer to the public of all ages and to make research and innovation known in a simple and fun way.
Every year, this event is held on the last Friday of September, although its popularity extends during the previous days and the weekend. This edition, however, due to the exceptional situation we are experiencing and because we have the necessary preparation time, the event has been postponed for two months and will take place on 27-28 November 2020.

Researchers' Night in Catalonia

For the same reason, the program has been modified according to the new guidelines and precautionary measures taken by the authorities and participating entities. Thus, this year includes a large number of online activities, both live and pre-recorded, which can be followed through the official Youtube channel of the Researchers' Night in Catalonia or through video conference platforms on 27 and 28 November, according to the specifications of each activity, which can be consulted on the website. In any case, the format of the activities will be subject to the indications set by the authorities and it is possible to modify part of the program until a few days before the event.
The in-person activities offered by the program will take place in different locations in each of the main nodes: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, Tarragona and Vic. At the Barcelona node, you can enjoy the Young Researchers' Night at CosmoCaixa and the various activities organized by Pessics de Ciència in collaboration with the City Council of Hospitalet de Llobregat.
The Researchers' Night in Catalonia also collaborates with the rest of the Nights in Spain, carrying out collaborative activities prior to the event, such as the talk "Science in uncertain times" which can be consulted on the Youtube channel.

Activities in collaboration with ICMAB

Some ICMAB researchers participate will deliver 5 microtalks about different research topics, and will also prepare the dramatised reading "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers" to be viewed in video. Are you ready?

  • Simulated microgravity system to synthesize high-quality 2D crystalline materials

    29 July 2021 286 hit(s) Press
    A team of researchers demonstrated that 2D porous crystalline molecular frameworks (MOFs) can be grown with excellent control over their morphology and homogeneity by using a custom-made microfluidic device. This approach recreates on Earth the microgravity environment of laboratories on the International Space Stations.
  • The 2021 ICMAB Summer Party celebrates the Institute’s 35 years!

    After last year’s party being cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, we were stoked to be able to finally celebrate again! The 2021 ICMAB Party was celebrated after more than a year without live events due to the collective efforts to stop the spread of COVID. The party was not without changes, as it was celebrated entirely at ICMAB’s terrace to avoid concentrations of people inside. We celebrated on 16 July 2021 with many events, including the first CRYSTALMATCH contest, the awards ceremony for the FOTICMAB contest, the BEFORE&NOW photo activity, a tie dye workshop by Sara Ruiz, Nerea González and Lídia Ballell, a sketching workshop by Alejandro Santos, and the final of the Tennis Table tournament!
  • ICMAB Celebrates its 35th anniversary!

    05 July 2021 522 hit(s) Outreach
    The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).
