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!

Visit of the CMES (Group for a Sustainable Energy Model) at ICMAB

The CMES is the "Col·lectiu per a un Nou Model Energètic i Social Sostenible". Funded in 2012, the group is formed by professionals, mainly from the engineering field, worried about the current energy model based on fossil fuels and uranium, which "will lead us to an environmental, economic and social crisis without precedents". The CMES group came to visit the ICMAB and listen to some of our researchers working on renewable energies, superconducting materials and batteries. Now, Xavier Obradors, ICMAB Director, will give a talk on "Nanotechnology and energy transition" on February 4, 2019.

Recap of the RRI2018 meeting and workshop at ICMAB

On 16 March 2018, with the aim of introducing this concept to the research community at ICMAB, and in collaboration with the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) i-Switch, a workshop on "Ethics and Responsible Research & Innovation in Research" (RRI2018) was organized. 

The workshop gathered several experts from the field that provided us with some insights on how to deal with some of the aspects included in RRI, from ethics and gender aspects in research to integrity and scientific misconduct. Two practical workshops focusing on the promotion of RRI and the available methods to implement it, by Rosina Malagrida (IrSiCaixa), were also included.
