UB, 4 Feb 2019: Jornada d'Investigadors Predoctorals Interdisciplinària

The 7th edition of the Interdisciplinary Meeting of Predoctoral Researchers (JIPI) will take place on Monday, 4 February 2019. The JIPI has become a meeting point for all predoctoral researchers in Catalonia. It offers the possibility to meet researchers of many other fields, learn about their interests and put ideas in common. It also aims at answering some unpleasant questions such as: Who might be interested in my research? Is it useful? What can I do after the PhD? Are you going to miss it?

Six-year old "scientists" from Sabadell enjoy the visit at ICMAB!

On Tuesday, 27 November 2018, we had a very special visit in our Institute: "the scientists" class formed by 24 six-year old students from "La Trama" school in Sabadell visited us. It was a fantastic visit. All the kids were very happy to become real scientists for a day, and to visit the laboratories, the clean room, the glove boxes, the microscopes and even to perform an X-ray diffraction experiment to discover what is sand made of.
