The 18th Edition of EXPOQUIMIA, the International Chemistry Eventfrom Fira de Barcelona, will take place on October 2-6, 2017, and will be the venue for the 10th World Congress on Chemical Engineering, the World Chemical Summit, and the PHARMAprocess forum. It will also host the exhibition Smart Chemistry, Smart Future, and the Industrial Biotech forum, and the IN(3D)USTRY, EQUIPLAST and EURSURFAS events.
El Festival de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia 10alamenos9 té com a objectiu la sensibilització i l’augment del coneixement general cap a la nanociència i la nanotecnologia al nostre país, mostrant les implicacions i l’abast d'aquestes dues disciplines a través de tallers, exposicions, taules rodones, cafès, tertúlies, seminaris, classes magistrals, actuacions de ciència, art i moltes altres activitats.
El festival compta amb tallers, exposicions, seminaris, concursos i nanodiàlegs. L'ICMAB, que també és un dels centres organitzadors, participarà en els següents esdeveniments:
We would like to congratulate our colleagues from the NanoEduca programme, created by the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) and Centre de Recursos Pedagògics Específics de Suport a la Innovació i la Recerca Educativa (CESIRE), for the 2018 National Award on Science Communication (Premi Nacional de Comunicació Científica 2018), which they received last night, Tuesday 3 December 2019, at the TNC.
Dr. Riccardo Rurali has been designated new Deputy Director of the ICMAB, since 1 October 2015.

ICMAB participates in the initiative "Yo ilustro la ciencia 3" within Illustraciencia, an international cycle of activities between October and December 2017. We are hosting a Science Illustration exhibition by Roc Olivé Pous, specialized in paleoart, dinosaurs, biology and medicine, in the framework of the "Setmana de la Ciència 2017" activities organized by the CSIC in Catalunya.
"Earlier this year, we announced that we would be launching a new open access journal, Heliyon, publishing sound science across all disciplines. We’re excited to tell you about the next phase of this journey, as we launch the journal platform and open for submissions."
Jordi Faraudo from ICMAB is involved in this new journal as a member of the Editorial Board.
Advanced Electronic Materials is an interdisciplinary forum for peer-reviewed, high-quality, high-impact research in the fields of materials science, physics, and engineering of electronic and magnetic materials. It includes research on physics and physical properties of electronic and magnetic materials, spintronics, electronics, device physics and engineering, micro- and nano-electromechanical systems, and organic electronics, in addition to fundamental research.
From now on Anna May Masnou is the new Communication & Outreach Officer at ICMAB. Anna holds a PhD in Materials Science and Technology and is currently studying a postgraduate course in Science Communication.
On 8 November 2018, the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC) decided to incorporate six new numerary members, two in Biological Sciences and four in Science and Technology. Nora Ventosa, Doctor in Chemical Engineering and researcher at ICMAB-CSIC, was designated new numerary member in the Science and Technology section. Congratulations!
PhD students, post-doctoral and young researchers, as well as engineers and technicians, from both academia and industry will be allowed to spend a week on a laboratory of the NFFA-Europe Consortium to gain hands-on experience of advanced services for nanoscience and nanotechnology.
