Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence

The ICN2 is proud to have been a Severo Ochoa centre of excellence since 2014. This award is the highest national recognition of scientific excellence and leadership in Spain. It denotes those research centres that are among the best in the world in their field. It also rewards commitment to generating social and business impact.

The funding that accompanied our first award was devoted to the four-year Nanodevices for Social Challenges research programme, now in its final reporting stage.

Our second Severo Ochoa award is still in its early stages. We envision a period of consolidation of the achievements of the past four years, and one of growth and diversification of the ways in our work impacts on the world around us.
