This year the ICMAB has participated for the third time in the seventh edition of the University Programme FUB+GRAN "Saber per descobrir", organized by the Fundació Universitària del Bages (UVIC-UCC), and addressed to people of more than 55 years old, who have interest in learning more.

In this last session, they visited first the ICMAB and then the ICN2, and some of their scientific and technical services. In a past session, the students could also visit the ALBA Synchrotron. 

At the ICMAB, the participants could visit the Low Temperatures and Magnetometry Lab, with Bernat Bozzo, the Pulse Laser Deposition (PLD) equipment, with Josep Fontcuberta, and the Nanoquim Platform, with Neus Romà, after a first introduction by Xavier Obradors and Belén Ballesteros
