ICMAB Annual Report, 1987-1989

ICMAB Celebrates its 35th anniversary!

The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986.

This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).

Minerals properties, energy transition, and more! Join ICMAB at the Barcelona Festa de la Ciència

ICMAB is contributing with two activities on the Barcelona Festa de la Ciència, on June 13, in front of the sea, in the Barceloneta area. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència takes place during that same week. 

An event to consider the potentials and limitations of knowledge. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència introduces science to the social debate, approaching society through several lenses, like the advancements that define the future, the ethical implications of science, the link between science and art, sociology, politics, gender equality, sustainability, and more. 

The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència will take place between 8 and 13 June. During the whole week there are many activities, both presential and online, that you can join. Take a look at the programme and enjoy science!

One year of lockdown at ICMAB

We asked a few PhD fellows how their research has changed one year after lockdown

How has the lockdown, restrictions, and the work from home lifestyle affected our research?

Monday, 16 March 2020 was not like any other Monday.

News came from China and Italy, about a fast spreading virus that required strict lockdowns to avoid its spread. It was clear than sooner, rather than later, actions would have to be taken everywhere else.

Experiences of "A researcher in your classroom 2.0" - online school visits

Even if we cannot go to schools face-to-face, ICMAB researchers have "visited" some schools using online platforms during these last months. For us it is important to still go to schools, to knock down the walls between young students and scientists, "for most of them it is the first time they meet someone who works as a researcher" says Judit Morlà Folch, one of the researchers who has participated.
