ICMAB Upcoming Events

The Scientific Advisory Board will come to ICMAB on 2-3 December 2021

On 2-3 December 2021, the ICMAB Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meeting will take place to evaluate the research lines and the overall performance of the Institute. 

29 November 2021

The SAB is composed of 12 worldwide scientific experts in the areas of the targeted research of our Severo Ochoa project: Smart Functional Materials for a Better Future (FUNFUTURE) in the areas of Clean Energy, Sustainable Electronics and Smart Nanomedicine.

The ICMAB renewed the Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence certificate on 2020 for four more years (2020-2023). M. Rosa Palacín, ICMAB Vice-Director and IP of the new Severo Ochoa project will talk about the context, strategy and progress of ICMAB in 2021.

This year, the SAB Meeting will evaluate two of our Research Lines: RL4 (Tuneable and Low Cost Molecular Electronics) and RL5 (Bioactive Materials for Therapy and Diagnosis). The coordinators of all 5 Research Line will present the main highlights of each line, and some selected researchers will present in 15-min talks more in detail some of the most relevant highlights of the two evaluated lines (RL4 and RL5). 

The SAB members will also have the opportunity to meet with some of our new incorporations, either PhD, postdoc and tenured scientists, and with ICMAB Director Xavier Obradors
