The five students could participate in a research project within a research group during 4 weeks, from July 4 to July 29, 2022. But not only did a research stay within one ICMAB research group, but also did a visit around our Scientific Equipment Platforms, could attend some talks on Technology Transfer (by Alfonso del Rey), Project Management(by Laura Cabana), and Communication (by Anna May), and could attend some of the group activities, such as PhD Thesis defense or demonstration of levitating superconducting trains. They could see how science is made in a Research Center!

On the very last day, 29 July 2022, the five students presented their final projects.
"El que més m'ha agradat de la meva estada ha sigut una mica l'autonomia que m'ha deixat l'Ángel que feia que jo em pogués organitzar, treballar al meu ritme i aprendre que com és realment treballar en un laboratori." - says Pablo Gómez. Pablo prepared a presentation with his experience in supercapacitors, and a flyer about these energy storage materials, which you can download here.
" M'ha sorprès tota la feina que hi ha al laboratori, tots els processos i aparells i protocols que no coneixia!" - says Blai Higueras. The final project of Blai was a flyer that can be used for the newcommers to the lab, and he did a very nice presentation about his experience in the lab.
"El que més m'ha agradat és poder aprendre de la feina que realitzaven els investigadors del meu grup de recerca i veure com es defensa una tesi doctoral." - says Ada Rigall. Ada could only stay for a week with us, but she loved all what she saw during this time.
"No m'esperava tot el bon rotllo que hi ha entre els investigadors. I tampoc que dos un lloc tan gran i preparat." - says Pau Rodés. Pau prepared some videos about his experience in the lab and showing how he prepared some of the radical dendrimers.

"M'ha agradat molt poder treballar en un laboratori de debò, participar en projectes i tot en general." - says Anastasiya Syurzhk. Anastasiya prepared a video of her stay at ICMAB, and a presentation about all the projects she worked on related to quatsomes nanovesicles. "Gràcies per fer aquesta experiència possible!"
The research stay was extremely well evaluated by the students, according to the survey that we passed them at the end.
