The project "Matheroes: Supermaterials, the heroes of the future" will be presented at the European Researchers Night in Zaragoza

"Matheroes" is a scientific culture project designed by the ICMAB-CSIC in collaboration with the FECYT (Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología) - Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades. The project will be presented on Friday, 28 September, in CaixaForum Zaragoza, within the programme of the European Reseachers Night (La Noche Europea de los Investigadores), coordinated by Esciencia.

On Friday, 28 September, on the occasion of the celebration of the European Researchers Night, the exhibition "Matheroes: Supermaterials, the heroes of the future" of the ICMAB-CSIC will be presented. In this exhibition, the visitors will be able to know at first hand the advanced new materials that are currently being developed at the Institute, thanks to the research carried out in the field of Materials Science. The exhibiton has been designed by the ICMAB-CSIC in collaboration with the FECYT-Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades.

Visitors can discover five new animated heroes, with the appearance of comic characters, who present us their surprising superpowers arising from the type of materials they represent. They represent the main research lines of the Institute and inform us about new applications and products. To know more about the properties of these materials, demos & experiments will be performed throughout the day to work with these amazing materials. 

The five research areas are: sustainable energy, represented by "FotoEnergía", nanostructured biomaterials, represented by "BioNanoCápsula", molecular electronics, represented by "ElectroWoman", superconducting materials, represented by "Superconductor" and oxides and magnetic materials, represented by "Magnon". The five superheroes come in five panels, together with an explanation of the materials and their properties, and with real samples of the materials from the Institute. 

The exhibition will open on Friday, 28 September, from 4 pm to 9 pm, in CaixaForum Zaragoza (Avda. Anselmo Clavé, 4, 50004 Zaragoza), within the ambicious programme prepared for this fantastic night.

    ICMAB is contributing with two activities on the Barcelona Festa de la Ciència, on June 13, in front of the sea, in the Barceloneta area. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència takes place during that same week.  An event to consider the potentials and limitations of knowledge. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència introduces science to the social debate, approaching society through several lenses, like the advancements that define the future, the ethical implications of science, the link between science and art, sociology, politics, gender equality, sustainability, and more.  The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència will take place between 8 and 13 June. During the whole week there are many activities, both presential and online, that you can join. Take a look at the programme and enjoy science!
