In the framework of the NFFA-Europe project, in which ICMAB is partner, the 1st EUSMI/NFFA-Europe Joint School on Data Management will take place in Trieste, Italy, on 10-11 December 2019.
Teresa Puig in "Hablando con Científicos" radio programme talking about her new ERC PoC on superconductors
Teresa Puig was interviewed in the digital radio programme "Hablando con Científicos" by Ángel Rodríguez Lozano, to talk about superconducting materials and her recent ERC Proof of Concept Grant on the scale-up production of high-temperature superconducting tapes.
Three "Joves i Ciència" doing research in materials science at the ICMAB: superconductors, photovoltaics and MOFs
- The future circular collider (FCC), with a 100 km circumference ring, will extend the research currently being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the search for new physics.
- High-temperature superconductors, such as YBCO, are being studied to be used as coating for the FCC ring instead of copper. Researchers have found that these materials outperform copper by a factor of 40, which would greatly enhance the FCC efficiency and provide big energy savings.
- The Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group at the ICMAB-CSIC participates in this study as part of a consortium with the ALBA Synchrotron, the IFAE and the UPC.
Researchers from the Nanomol Group initiate contacts with the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) to bring a new treatment against venous leg ulcers to clinical practice
Researchers of the Nanomol group of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), together with the company Nanomol Technologies S.L. have begun a consultation process with the Spanish Association of Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) to try and enter a new treatment in a clinical studies stage, to fight against venous ulcers in lower extremities. The study is carried out within the framework of the RIS3CAT NANONAFRES project.
