The Manuel Cardona lecture series offers the ICN2 community and beyond the opportunity to hear from some of the most prominent researchers in nano-related fields. They are named in honour of Prof. Manuel Cardona, a Barcelona-born physicist whose influence was felt across many regional research institutes, including the ICN2.
