Hi! My name is Nerea Murugarren and I am studying Biochemistry in the University Autonomous of Barcelona. I decided to do the practical work for my last degree year in the ICMAB as I found interesting the research field of the group "Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites".
I consider myself as a friendly person so I will be pleased to get to know people while I am there.
Finally, I attached a photo from my last holiday in Egypt. See you!
In the afternoon of Monday, 9 September 2019, a meeting was held between the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, the research centres and units distinguished with the certificate of excellence Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu, and representatives of 15 autonomous communities. The purpose of the meeting at the Ministry was to highlight the impact of the Severo Ochoa - María de Maeztu programme, and to expose its benefits for the consolidation of excellence research of the different autonomous communities.
The 10th edition of the "Ideas Generation Program" (Programa Generació d'Idees) is special since it is part of a broader initiative to solve smart food challenges. Innovations can be implemented in the production, processing, packaging or consumption of the whole food industry. Any ideas? Registration is open until October 1, 2019.

Hi, I'm Shima Fasahat from Iran and Isfahan city. I came to the ICMAB for a summer research internship in the field of nanocarbon supercapacitors. This was a great chance for me to learn many new things. Currently I am an undergraduate physics student at university of Isfahan, Isfahan, Iran. I am interested in learning new languages and at the moment I know English and French in addition to my mother tongue which is Persian. I'm going to learn Spanish for the third foreign language. I also do fitness as my sport time and hobby
The 1st EUSMI/NFFA-Europe Joint School on Data Management will take place in Trieste, Italy, on 10-11 December 2019. The course is in the framework of the NFFA-Europe project, which integrates 20 partners, including the ICMAB.
Hi! I am Núria, a student from the UB.
I am going to spend the summer at the ICMAB doing my my TFG in the SUMAN group and I am looking forward to learn everything I can from this experience!

Icosahedral carboranes as scaffolds for congested regioselective polyaryl compounds: the distinct distance tuning of C–C and its antipodal B–B
Hi! My name is Ivan, I am from Barcelona and I am a Physicist with a master in Nanoscience&Nanotechnologies. I'll be joining the group Nanopto, specifically, I'll work on the project "Sensoraïm". The project aims to develop an organic thermoelectric energy harvester device which will power sensors for smart monitoring of viticulture. The aim is to enhance the quality of wine!
I enjoy traveling, hiking, photography and recently I've joined a Volleyball club!
The Fundación General CSIC (FGCSIC) has been organising several editions of the Course of Good Scientific Practices (CBPC) for the past year, aimed at promoting awareness and training in scientific integrity and good practices among those who start research at the CSIC. The next edition of the course will be held on 21-24 October 2019 in Casa de la Ciencia (Valencia). Regiser before 4 October 2019!

Naukas Bilbao is one of the greatest event in Science Communication in Spain. This year the 9th edition of Naukas will take place in Bilbao, from 19 to 22 September 2019, at the Palacio Euskalduna, which can host an audience of more than 2,000 people! This year, the Nanomol Group researcher Dolores Bueno, will give a talk about the project in which she is participating, Smart4Fabry. The talk is entitled "Share your rare!" and will be on Friday, 20 September, at 11:10 am. Good luck, Dolores!
Hi, my name is Clemens Lindermeir from Wolfenbüttel, Germany. I am eighteen years old and joined the ICMAB to do an internship for a year. In Germany I study chemical engineering at the Clausthal University of Technology. Apart from that I enjoy being outdoors, riding motorcycle and playing my guitar. I am also a big fan of travelling. During my stay I`d like to learn Spanish (and maybe Catalan) fluently and I will keep looking for new experiences and friends to spend time with.

- 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.
