The 2021 ICMAB Summer Party celebrates the Institute’s 35 years!

After last year’s party being cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, we were stoked to be able to finally celebrate again!

The 2021 ICMAB Party was celebrated after more than a year without live events due to the collective efforts to stop the spread of COVID. The party was not without changes, as it was celebrated entirely at ICMAB’s terrace to avoid concentrations of people inside. We celebrated on 16 July 2021 with many events, including the first CRYSTALMATCH contest, the awards ceremony for the FOTICMAB contest, the BEFORE&NOW photo activity, a tie dye workshop by Sara Ruiz, Nerea González and Lídia Ballell, a sketching workshop by Alejandro Santos, and the final of the Tennis Table tournament!

Oh, and we gave away the 35 years commemorative ICMAB shirts!

This year’s party had the first edition CRYSTALMATCH, ICMAB’s crystal growing competition. It was organized by and judged by Teresa Calvet, from the Universitat de Barcelona, and ICMAB Researchers Jordi Rius, Anna Crespi, and Nico Dix, as well as former ICMAB Director Carles Miravitlles. We will soon share the winners in a future post.

The BEFORE&NOW activity gave us a look into how the ICMAB staff has changed and evolved during the years, comparing images from 1991 and 2021!
