The ICMAB donates 33.200 gloves for medical uses

The ICMAB is since last Monday 16 March 2020, an Institute with Restricted Access. Most of the laboraories are empty, the Scientific and Technical Services are closed, only the basic services are working and most of the people is working and staying at home. For this reason, when we heard that Personal Protection Equipment was needed in the hospitals and health centers, we had no doubt that we could donate some of the material that we had.
Mar 22, 2020

All the Research Groups and the personnel working on the Scientific and Technical Services showed from the beginning a big solidarity and wanted to cooperate by giving away all their stock of Personal Protection Equipment. What all the groups could offer were gloves (either latex or nitrile). 

Oriol Sabater, Head of Maintenance, coordinated the gathering of all the boxes of gloves. Finally, 125 boxes of latex gloves and 207 boxes of nitrile gloves were collected, making a total of 33.200 gloves. The Personal Protection Equipment was donated to the Parc Taulí University Hospital, located in the neighbour city of Sabadell last Thursday, 19 March 2020.

As a Reserach Center we feel responsible to act and collaborate to help those who are working to fight the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Apart from stopping most of our activities in the center and helping and encouraging our staff to work from home, the least that we can do is to donate the material that we are currently not using to those who need it the most.

Thank you to all of you!

    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!

    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)).

    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.
