The objectives of this committee are to attract junior and senior scientists with outstanding track record on FUNMAT specialties, from Spain and abroad; foster and develop a professional career to promote excellent researchers on FUNMAT specialties.
Gender is a cross-cutting issue and is mainstreamed in all European and national projects, ensuring a more integrated approach to research and innovation. The objectives of the Gender Committee are based on the strategy on gender equality of Horizon 2020:
The objectives of this seminar are to disseminate the ICMAB research lines; et people know the new researchers incorporated at ICMAB; spread the offer of the Scientific and Technical services available at ICMAB; offer periodical seminars by renowned national and international researchers. attract top class young scientists with outstanding track record with profiles that will strengthen the RLs and who will support the implementation of the SRP and the consolidation of our center; generate a distinctive and competitive post-graduate and multidisciplinar training program specialized on Advanced Functional Materials and Nanomaterials as the best possible starting platform for a successful career; and organize Training Workshops on specific subjects.
The Communication & Outreach Committee was formally established in April 2018, as part of one of the Severo Ochoa project objectives, to invigorate the Communication & Outreach of the Institute. The committee is formed by the C&O officer and by representatives from the different research lines and technical services of the Institute.
The aim of the committee is to support and collaborate on internal and external communications. This includes communication within the center and organization of events, and communication to the press and social media. It functions as a general discussion space for supporting, developing, and sharing information about communications efforts. The committee's primary method of communication is by email and by periodical meetings.
As part of its mission, ICMAB aims to inform society about the research being conducted by its scientists in materials science, both to help citizens understand the importance of research and make informed decisions, and to encourage young people to consider scientific careers.
The institute organizes or takes part in a range of dissemination activities throughout the year. These outreach activities are coordinated by the Communication & Outreach Office, with direct collaboration with researchers from all groups and technicians through the Committee. Together they also develop materials for students and teachers to help explain certain concepts and methods.
