Research Projects

By the end of 2019, nine researchers of the ICMAB had been granted with eleven projects of the European Research Council (ERC) (one starting on 2020). The ERC operates according to a "curiosity-driven", or "bottom-up", approach, allowing researchers to identify new opportunities in any field of research. Accordingly, the portfolio ERC funded projects spans a wide range of topics and research questions.

At the ICMAB we have projects on superconducting tapes, organic energy materials, cancer therapy and diagnosis, graphene-based devices, flexoelectricity, photonic and optoelectronic devices, molecular electronic devices, calcium and magnesium-based batteries and materials for the future 5G technology.

The two ERC projects awarded in 2019 are the following:

  • FeMiT (Ferrites-by-design for Millimiter-wave and Terahertz Technologies), an ERC-CoG by Martí Gich
  • IMPACT (Industrial Manufacturing Process for A high temperature superconducting Coated conductors Technology), an ERC-PoC by Teresa Puig (starting in 2020)

Our researchers have also been awarded with many other European projects (EUROFUSION, FET-PROACTIVE, MSCA-ITN, MSCA-IF...), national projects (CSIC i-LINK+, PN2018, RyC, FPI, INTRAMURAL...) and regional (Beatriu de Pinós, Ajuts Producte, La Marató de TV3...) projects.
