On Wednesday, 27 March 2019, we received the visit of Engineering Undergraduate students from the Escola Universitària Salesiana de Sarrià (EUSS) (Salesian University School of Sarrià). The EUSS is a center afiliated to the UAB created in 1994 and located in Barcelona. Xavier Obradors gave a first overview to the ICMAB research and then the students could visit some of our labs.
Elena Bartolomé, Associated Researcher at ICMAB at the Superconducting and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group, and Professor at EUSS, organized the visit to the ICMAB so that her students could see what is a research center like, and what is the current research in materials science in the fields of energy, electronics and nanomedicine.

After a brief introduction by Anna May Masnou, Communication & Outreach Officer who coordinated the visit, Xavier Obradors, ICMAB Director, gave an overview of the ICMAB, its people, and the research in the current five research lines of the Institute: materials for clean energy conversion and storage, superconductors for power applications, oxide and molecular electronics and nanostructured biomaterials.
After the talk, the group of 20 students could visit the Low Temperatures and Magnetometry Lab with Bernat Bozzo, the X-ray diffraction Lab with Anna Crespi and F. Xavier Campos, and the Nanoquim Platform (Cleanroom) with Neus Romà and Luigi Morrone.

Elena Bartolomé, after the visit said the following:
"Muchas gracias por la organización de la visita de la EUSS al ICMAB, ha estado muy bien, y el grupo se ha llevado una buena idea panorámica del centro, dentro del tiempo que teníamos." Elena Bartolomé
Thank you, EUSS students and professors for visiting us, and thank you to all the ICMAB staff who collaborated in this visit!
