Welcome to our web site. Through this portal we want to communicate with you.We hope that you will find here all you would like to know about the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) and also that you use it to contact us for any queries or suggestions.
Materials Science has evolved dramatically in the last 20 years and the cutting edge activities in this area are now deeply rooted in the Nanoscience revolution.The initial and ongoing mission of the ICMAB is “to generate new knowledge in Materials Science and transfer it to the society, particularly to industry within the European Research Area“. Materials Science has evolved dramatically in the last 20 years and the cutting edge activities in this area are now deeply rooted in the Nanoscience revolution. Our commitment is to become strongly involved in new developments in this area.
To foster the mission of the ICMAB we are integrated in the Barcelona Nanocluster at Bellaterra (BNC-b), a virtual network of research centers integrated in the Research Park of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (PRUAB).The Strategic Plan of the ICMAB for 2014-17 defines four research lines, three of them focusing on the materials finality and the fourth one having a methodological character.
- Sustainable Energy Conversion and Storage System
- Superconductors for Power Applications
- Oxide Electronics
- Molecular Electronics
- Multifuctional Nanostructured Biomaterials
We are specially very proud of the large effort undertaken within the ICMAB to train young scientists. Our enthusiasm and the attractive environment found at ICMAB makes it a very appealing place for talented students. So don’t hesitate to join us!
