BIST supports multidisciplinary research through the BIST Ignite Programme and Awards

The awarded projects are BIOVAC (ICN2 / IBEC), which aims to develop a new generation of vaccines against untreatable infections and multi-resistant bacteria, and BIOSPAD (ICFO / IFAE), which will develop more affordable brain diagnostic tests. ICN2 is involved in 4 of the 5 projects selected in the 2020 Ignite Programme, leading one of them (SensMOF) through Dr Leyre Gómez Navascués.



Research meets industry at the Graphene 2019 Conference

Starting this morning in Rome, this edition of the Graphene Conference series (June 25-28) will bring together experts on graphene and 2D materials from around Europe, as well as companies interested in exploiting new promising technologies in this field. The ICN2 has a leading role in creating new graphene-based scientific and industrial opportunities. Visit the BIST booth we share with our colleagues from ICFO and IFAE!




The ICN2 celebrates the first Severo Ochoa ICT Workshop: Lavoisier discussion on “Quantum Simulation”

The event, held on 8-9 May, is the first of a series of workshops offering an overview of the different research areas covered by the ICN2 Severo Ochoa Strategic Plan. It was focused on ultrafast dynamics and organised in collaboration with the European centre of excellence MaX, GRR-I Graphene&Co and GDR Graphene&Co. ICREA Prof. Stephan Roche, Group Leader of the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, was the local coordinator of the event.


Graphene enables a new technology for detecting terahertz radiation

A recent study in Nano Letters depicts a device that overcomes the several disadvantages related to current terahertz detectors. ICN2 Junior Group Leader Dr Klaas-Jan Tielrooij, who was involved in this work while still performing his research at ICFO, is one of the corresponding authors.


Dr Klaas-Jan Tielrooij joins the ICN2 with an ERC Starting Grant

This researcher combines the study of fundamental physics with applied research, exploring ultrafast dynamics in nanoscale systems and their application in the fields of photodetection, quantum technologies and telecommunications. Building on close collaborations via inter-institutional projects within BIST, he will join the ICN2 in October as junior group leader, complete with his recently awarded ERC Starting Grant.


BIST reveals the five Ignite seed projects for 2018

Today the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) announce the five projects that will receive seed funding under the 2018 edition of its Ignite programme to accelerate multidisciplinary research at its member institutes.
