José Vidal-Gancedo talks about COVID-19 and temperature on RAC1

The relationship between environmental factors and SARS-CoV-2 will shape the ways in which we respond to the virus as the weather changes. It is still soon to have a definitive idea of how it is affected by variables like temperature, humidity, or ultraviolet radiation, but José Vidal-Gancedo has been compiling what we know and developing a comprehensive article on the topic. His findings have been echoing on the media: he first published the article on La Vanguardia, which was followed by an interview on Aquí Cuní on SER Catalunya.

MIT-Spain grant for ICMAB project: new materials for photovoltaics

ICMAB is the recipient of one of twelve MIT-Spain ”la Caixa” Foundation Seed Fund grants under a brand new funding programme in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

The presentation of the grants took place on 18 April 2018 at Palau Macaya (Barcelona). A common objective of all the awarded projects is to face some of the challenges of the XXI century: organs on a chip to fight cancer, polymers against antibiotic resistance, in vitro biologic 3D ears, quantic computers for data processing, or new materials to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic cells, to name a few. This latter is the project from Dr. Ignasi Fina, from the MULFOX group at ICMAB, who will work together with Dr. Rafael Jaramillo, at MIT

Interview to Mariano Campoy-Quiles in Radio Efervescencia

Interview at Radio Efervescencia (CRTVG) to Mariano Campoy-Quiles to talk about "low cost and flexible solar pannels". The interview is in Galician.

You can find the interview here, in the Blog CRTVG Efervesciencia: Efer 281 (19-4-14): Paneis solares flexibles e baratos

"A enerxía que chega do sol á terra nunha hora é abonda como para cubrir as necesidades enerxéticas de toda a humanidade durante un ano. Un dos motivos de por que non temos os nosos tellados inzados de paneis solares fotovoltaicos é que son caros en comparación con outras fontes de enerxía. Pero, que pasaría se aparecese unha nova tecnoloxía de fabricación de paneis solares que abaratase 10 veces o seu prezo? Nisto esta a traballar o noso invitado desta semana, Mariano Campoy, que é científico titular do CSIC no Instituto de Ciencia de Materiais de Barcelona."

Listen to the interview to Mariano Campoy-Quiles here (in Galician).
