Coming soon! SOPHOT: Severo Ochoa Workshop on Phononics and Thermal Transport

Date: 2021-10-18

The new workshop on phononics and thermal transport will take place on 18-19 October 2021 from ICMAB and online. Register before 11 October!

Heat transport is becoming increasingly important within the Research Line in Sustainable Energy Conversion and Storage Systems (RL1 at ICMAB).

Besides the fundamental scientific interest, learning how to modulate the heat flow has important applications in conventional electronics (where heat dissipation at the nanoscale is a major issue) or in the design of efficient thermoelectric materials (where materials with low thermal conductivities must be engineered).

Watercolor sketch of the Table Tennis Tournament by Alejandro Santos

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!

The SCN2 organizes the 2021 Nanotechnology & Industry for PhD researchers day

Date: 2021-06-22

On 22 June 2021, from 4 to 6:30 pm, the SCN2 (Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology) will celebrate the second edition of the event 'Nanotechnology and Industry for PhD researchers'.

The aim of the event is to talk about nanotechnology applied to the field of industry and business. This year the event counts with the participation of three spin-offs from ICN2, ICMAB and IMB-CNM: InBrain Neuroelectronics, Nanomol Technologies and Energiot, who will explain us their process of technology transfer.
