Strategic Managing Unit

The Strategic Managing Unit at ICMAB is responsible for the implementation of the funding obtained by the Institute. It plays a key role supporting our researchers in the preparation, submission and reporting of local, national and European grants. In close collaboration with ICMAB’s governing bodies and the other available Units, it promotes a continuous development strategy to position ICMAB as one of the leading European Research Centres in Materials Science. Among its main objectives, the Unit is responsible for the constant search for new funding opportunities focusing on the strategic and innovation objectives of our Severo Ochoa award FUNMAT ("Functional Materials for Social Grand Challenges", 2016-2019) with the aim of enhancing ICMAB's scientific excellence. The Unit keeps always an open-minded approach to detect new opportunities for our researchers.
