On 15-16 November 2018, the members of the ICMAB Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) visited our Institute to scientifically evaluate the research lines and the overall performance of the Institute. In this year's visit, three research lines were evaluated: RL2: Superconductors for power applications; RL4: Molecular electronics; and RL5: Multifunctional nanostructured biomaterials.
On Saturday, 17 November 2018, we participated in the "Science Tech Girls Vallès" event, in the Library Vapor Badia in Sabadell. The event was planned as a morning full of science and technology for girls between 8 and 18 years old. Boys could also participate, but it was an action to encourage the participation of girls in science. The morning started at 10 am with the dramatised reading, created and performed by ICMAB women, "Madame du Châtelet and her Instagram followers", which wants to visibilize the women scientists throughout history.
The ICMAB congratulated for the participation at Expominer 2018 for all the workshops, Matheroes exhibiton and talks presented
On Tuesday, 6 November, the "Consejo de Política Científica, Tecnológica y de Innovación" (CPTI) from the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities updated the new Map of the Singular Scientific and Technological Infrastructures (ICTS) for 2017-2020. NANBIOSIS, whose Director is Prof. Jaume Veciana from the ICMAB, and in which the ICMAB and many CSIC institutes participate, is one of these 29 ICTS that renewed its accreditation.
