Courses and Workshops
POSTPONED! We proudly announce the ICMAB summer school on “OPTICALLY CONTROLLED FERROELECTRIC MEMRISTORS” (OPTOFEM2020). The School was going to take place on June 18-19, 2020, at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), but now due to the COVID-19 it is postponed. New dates will be confirmed soon. Deadline for registration is May 2, 2020.
UPDATE 10 March 2020: Due to the continuous change of measures of our governments in relation to the coronavirus propagation and the uncertainty this gives on the possibilities to held the workshop in honour of Jaume Veciana & Concepció Rovira, combined with the impossibility of many of the attendants to travel, we have decided to postpone the workshop after summer.
The Soft Lab, run by Amable Bernabé, has hosted from Monday, 7 October, to Wednesday, 9 October a course on "Characterization techniques for particulate materials". The course has counted with 12 participants from different CSIC centers (including ICMAB, IBM-CNM, ICM, IQAC...) and has introduced the participants to different techniques to characterize nanoparticles and other particulate matter, including the basic fundamentals, sample preparation, practical examples and results interpretation.
On Wednesday, 23 October 2019, and to celebrate the Open Access Week, which is celebrated this week all over the world, we organized a seminar on "Open Access at ICMAB: Frequently Asked Questions". The seminar was for the Institute researchers to solve some doubts about publishing in Open Access, and organized by the ICMAB "Manuel Cardona" library. Read here more about it!
On Monday, 28 October 2019, the ICMAB staff, especially the new Master students and PhD and Postdoc fellows, are invited to the presentation of the Scientific Equipment Platforms (SEP) of the ICMAB. The 9 Scientific and Technical Services have prepared some posters to present their equipment and research techniques to the researchers to broaden up their research possibilities. We are sure that from this day, new and exciting collaborations will emerge.
On Friday, 6 November 2019, the ICMABand Mettler Toledo organize a workshop for students and young researchers on Good Laboratory Practices. There will be three sessions on Spectrometry UV/Vis, Good Pipetting and Electrochemistry and pH. A Certificate of Attendance will be issued for each participant. Regiser before 14 October 2019! The session is especifically for Bachelor and Master Students and PhD fellows, although everyone is invited!
The 1st EUSMI/NFFA-Europe Joint School on Data Management will take place in Trieste, Italy, on 10-11 December 2019.The course is in the framework of the NFFA-Europe project, which integrates 20 partners, including the ICMAB.
On Wednesday, 10 July 2019, ALBA Synchrotron hosts a workshop on "Single photon detection" constituting a Satellite Workshop to the Expert Group meeting of the SENSE initiative. Lourdes Fábrega will give the talk "
On Thursday, 11 July, we receive the visit of South Korean researchers working on Flexible Electronics. We have organized a small workshop open to all our staff and researchers of the surrounding centers, in which they will explain their research, and then some of our ICMABers researchers, will explain our research on this topic. You are all invited!
In the framework of the MSCA-RISE 2017 H2020 Project: Hybrid Nanostructured Oligonucleotide Platforms for Biomedical Applications (Nano-OligoMed), the International Summer School on Hybrid (bio) Nanostructures (HyNano), which is focused on hybrid organic-inorganic materials containing biomolecules or having bioinspired structures, will take place in Alghero (Italy) between 3-7 September 2019. Nora Ventosafrom the NANOMOL group is Invited Speaker. Register before 30 June 2019!
Carlos Frontera, researcher at ICMAB and member of the Gender Equality Committee of the ICMAB, attended on February 14-15, 2019, the European project LIBRA workshop to share experiences on “How to design, implement and follow-up a Gender Equality Plan”.
On Thursday, 14 March 2019, the ICMAB hosts the workshop on Gender Equality in Research Centers entitled "¿Y a mí, qué me aporta la igualdad?". The workshop is aimed for all the ICMAB staff (scientific, technical, administration, students...) and will take place from 8:45 am to 2 pm. Don't miss this opportunity to learn and interact with your colleagues about this topic that affects all of us!

On 17-20 September ICMAB will host the MATENER 2018: Severo Ochoa Summer School on Materials for Energy. This summer school is addressed to last year undergraduate, master and PhD students, who are interested in the development of materials with energy applications, such as photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, batteries or superconducting materials. Download the book of abstracts and the programme in the school website!
Aiming at developing internal talent and meeting the needs of ICMAB's young scientists, ICMAB's Communication & Outreach and Library & Documentation services offer from January to May 2018 a course of 15 hours (divided in 5 modules of 3 hours each) on documentation and writing tools necessary for research: "Essential documentation tools for research - Practical guide for young ICMAB researchers".
Hemos terminado de impartir en el ICMAB elcurso “Creixement de materials, del laboratori al aula“.
L'ICMAB organitzarà un nou curs el 25 i 27 de maig i l'1 de juny.
