By 2019, nine researchers of the ICMAB had been granted with eleven projects of the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC operates according to a "curiosity-driven", or "bottom-up", approach, allowing researchers to identify new opportunities in any field of research. Accordingly, the portfolio ERC funded projects spans a wide range of topics and research questions.
At the ICMAB we have projects on superconducting tapes, organic energy materials, cancer therapy and diagnosis, graphene-based devices, flexoelectricity, photonic and optoelectronic devices, molecular electronic devices, calcium and magnesium-based batteries and ferries for 5G materials. Our researchers have also been awarded by many other European projects (FETOPEN, COFUND, EURONANOMED…) and other projects from different institutions. Check them out!
