The ESTORE project aims to innovate the energy storage in supercapacitors

The project comes from the collaboration of ICMAB Researchers and groups from the UAB and UB.

Electrochemical capacitors, or supercapacitors, are one of the key technologies being researched in the field of energy storage.

A cornerstone of the large-scale implementation of renewable energies, electrochemical storage solutions that can store large amounts of energy are necessary to implement renewable energy, smart energy distribution grids, efficient electric transport, as well as mobile and autonomous devices.

ICMAB joins the 7th edition of the Science by Women programme

A senior African women researcher will develop a research project during a 6-month stay at ICMAB. 

The Fundación Mujeres por África (FMxA)(Women for Africa Foundation) is partnering with the Spanish ‘Severo Ochoa’ and other Centers of Excellence to bring the Science by Women programme to fruition. The project intends to host women researchers from African countries, so they can benefit from these research internships to promote and lead the scientific innovation that contributes to tackling the great challenges faced by African countries through research in health and biomedicine, sustainable agriculture and food security, water, energy and climate change.
