ICN2 Strategy Development Team Participates in the 2023 EARMA Conference in Prague

The ICN2 Strategy Development team recently participated in the 2023 European Association of Research Managers and Administrators (EARMA) Conference in Prague. The three-day event focused on the professionalization of research management and administration, as well as the impact of research evaluation reform. The ICN2 team was proud to have Núria Benítez as a speaker, contributing to an Open Science experts round table. The team gained valuable insights into the latest developments in the field and had the opportunity to network with professionals from around the world.

Tunable “chemical electrodes” for bistable polarization screening and control

Researchers at the ICN2 have devised a new method to control the polarization of ferroelectric surfaces by functionalising them with “optimal” organic molecules, whose internal electronic configuration adapts to polarization orientation upon switching. These "chemical electrodes" have proven to be more efficient than standard metallic electrodes or atmospheric adsorbates used up to now.
