ICMAB researchers collaborate in this project that is trying to create scientific vocations by teaching nanoscience to primary school kids.
The “Valida la teva Recerca” programme offers tools to approach the transference to the market.
J. Mater. Chem. C, 9, 3486 - 3492 (2021)
Launch of the cross-european PHOENIX project, which will provide a new infrastructure available to research laboratories, SMEs and start-ups to facilitate the transfer of nano-pharmaceuticals from the laboratory to clinical practice. PHOENIX will have a duration of 4 years and a total budget of 14.45 million euros. Two CSIC Institutes, ICMAB (CSIC) and INMA (CSIC-UNIZAR), and one CSIC spin-off, Nanomol Technologies, participate in the project.
A talk on entrepreneurship for scientists helps broaden the professional horizons of PhD Researchers
Unit U6 of NANBIOSIS (Biomaterial Processing and Nanostructuring Unit) has expanded its capabilities with two new instruments for the characterization unit. The new equipment will allow the characterization of some physico-chemical properties of different nanomaterials.
Calci, sodi i carboni: materials per a l'electricitat del futur (CCMA, 324, 20/03/2021)
Materials for the energy of the future: superconductors, batteries, and thermoelectricity. Main characters for three nights in a row in TV prime time.
We are happy to organize and invite you to the following ERC Session at ICMAB:

Thursday, 25 March 2020, from 3 pm to 5 pm
Online Invited Seminar by Zoom. Register here to attend.
The organization offers a younger point of view on science and science policy.
The Young Academy of Europe is an organization that brings together young scientists and scholars from all parts of Europe that have outspoken views about science and science policy. It’s a bottom-up organization that develops networking activities, as well as advocacy, science policy and scientific exchanges.
Hello everyone! I’m Nicoló and I’m an Industrial Biotechnology master’s student in Turin, Italy. I just joined the Nanomol group, under the supervision of Dr. Nora Ventosa, in order to complete my master thesis on the application of nanomaterials in the medical field. I’m very excited about this project and I hope I can contribute to it and broaden my knowledge in this field. I love music and doing sport in my free time, particularly cycling and running. I’m looking forward to have an amazing time at ICMAB, see you all around!
ICMAB participates in a project that wants to significantly improve the energy density, cost and sustainability of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries. Batteries with such improved parameters are highly sought-after in the growing electric vehicle (EV) industry.
New Inside Cover in the journal Advanced Materials Technologies for the article "Quartz‐Based Cantilevers: Soft‐Chemistry‐Assisted On‐Chip Integration of Nanostructured α‐Quartz Microelectromechanical System".
How has the lockdown, restrictions, and the work from home lifestyle affected our research?
News came from China and Italy, about a fast spreading virus that required strict lockdowns to avoid its spread. It was clear than sooner, rather than later, actions would have to be taken everywhere else.
We visited the Institut Escola Arts in Barcelona to show them some of the impressive properties of materials!
The FLOWBAT network, supported by the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), is developing flow battery technology for large scale energy storage. The ICMAB team is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher on flow battery electrolytes.
Researchers Rosario Nuñez and Gerard Tobias: “The therapeutic approach proposed here has the potential to be the basis of a more efficient, less aggressive and less toxic cancer treatment.”
The study of metal-insulator transitions in VO2 through atomic scale imaging has allowed to uncover a periodical tweed structure: a weaving of vanadium dimers acting like the threads of an actual tweed at the atomic level. This research, led by ICMAB researcher Felip Sandiumenge and ICN2 and ICREA researcher Gustau Catalan, and published in Advanced Materials, provides relevant information for the understanding of transitional states in specific classes of materials.
Hi, My name is Neil. I am a physics engineer from Belgium with a background in nuclear fusion. I got enrolled as a PhD student here at ICMAB in January 2021 to work on high energy applications of HTS coated conductors. Applying concepts of advanced physics to real world applications has always been a strong drive for me, and doing it while living in the delightful city of Barcelona feels great! Besides physics, I am interested in other fields of Science such as neurology and kinesitherapy, and I always enjoy dancing/doing sport, especially on the beach!
ICMAB researchers from the LMI group have collaborated in a study to design minimalist biostructures that imitate natural enzymes, capable of carrying out two differentiated and reversibly regulated activities thanks to a unique combination of structural and functional properties. The strategy used opens the door to the creation of “intelligent” nanomaterials with tailor-made combinations of catalytic functions.
On 12 April 2021 the Gender Equality Committee organizes the course on inclusive language, given by the "Almena Cooperativa Feminista".
For the international Day of Women, we are sharing some resources detailing the state of women in science and some ways to create a STEM field that is more inclusive.
The European Energy Research Alliance Joint Programme intends to align research and development activities in the fields of energy storage.
The SENSORAÏM project, framed in the field of precision agriculture, started in July 2019 and now has come to an end. Here we present its major achievements.
Hello everyone! My name is Martín Testa Anta and I am from the marvelous Galicia. I am joining ICMAB to work under the supervision of Dr. Can Onur Avci within the ERC Starting Grant project ‘MAGNEPIC’. My research will be focused on the spin-torque control of magnetization in ferrimagnetic insulators. Outside the lab, I love sports and nature, particularly hiking and cycling far and wide to different places. I am looking forward to making the most of this experience. See you all around!
The CSIC White Paper presents the interdisciplinary approaches that the CSIC Research Centers are applying in order to face several of the scientific and social challenges of the next 10 years.
CSIC introduced the White Paper in a digital event livestreamed and now archived on YouTube, analyzing several topics across its three areas of work: Life, Matter, and Society. These documents cover the whole spectrum of research, from basic investigation to potential applications of the results achieved, in order to create helpful strategies and organization models to apply when facing the main challenges we will encounter in the coming years.
