The EU project FETFX has completed its Journalist-in-the-lab programme last 24-26 February 2020. The initiative, designed by FETFX partner Fondazione iCons, allowed science communication students get hands on with content creation at the ICMAB and the ICN2 with researchers working on FET European projects.
Anna Morales, alias SizeMatters in YouTube, is a Researcher in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and a YouTuber. She owns the channel "SizeMatters", which is a nanoscience and nanotechnology channel in Spanish. In her last video, she explains the concepts of nanotechnology in some Marvel superheroes, and also in our Matheroes: ElectroWoman, Magnon, Bionanocapsule and Fotoenergy!
Watch here the talk by Gerard Tobias "El carboni: de l’origen de la vida a la nanociència" #aitp2019

The Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Generation (NANOPTO) group has auto-edited a video in which the process of fabrication or organic solar cells with thickness gradients is explained. This process is part of the ERC project by Mariano Campoy-Quiles "FOREMAT: Finding a needle in a haystack: Efficient identification of high performing organic energy materials".
On 14 May 2019 we received the visit of Klaus Attenkofer, new Scientific Director of ALBA Synchrotron at the Experiments Division since 4 March 2019. Klaus Attenkofer was received by our Director, Xavier Obradors, by our Vicedirector, M. Rosa Palacín, and by the Head of the Scientific Equipment Platforms, Carlos Frontera.
The following article appeared in the ERC Newsletter on 26 October 2018. It is about the project #LasCientíficasCuentan, which explalins complex science through the voice of fifteen female ERC grantees in Spain. From ICMAB, Teresa Puig and Marta Mas-Torrent participated in the project, funded by the FECYT and the FGCSIC. They give talks, participate in roundtables, and appear in some videos explaining their research!
