First Ordinary General Assembly (FOGA)

The First Ordinary General Assembly (FOGA) of the Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SCN2) took place last Saturday 29th of September. The FOGA was structured in two parts. In the morning, the agenda/program of activities began with a general presentation of the association and the team forming its Executive Board, as well as the voting of the official documents of the organization (Statutes and Internal Regime Regulations, IRR). As for the afternoon, we had several group and team-building activities to get to know each other better in this first encounter. Segueix llegint

Ask a nanotechnologist!

On Wednesday, April 11th I went to CosmoCaixa to participate in the initiative “Ask a nanotechnologist” organized by the Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SCN²) included within the activities of the “10alamenos9” festival. They invited me over as a graduated nanotechnologist who has chosen to follow a different path from the academic one: in my case, science communication. There I got to meet again with my degree classmates who also came to the activity representing different career paths. Segueix llegint

Nanoscience festival

On the occasion of the nanotechnology divulgation festival 10alamenos9, which takes place once a year in different locations along the peninsula, students and graduates of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology have taken part in various activities as organizers and volunteers during this edition. Thanks to the Scientific and Technological Centres of the UB (CCiTUB), the SCN² could get involved in the organization and coordination of the festival at the CosmoCaixa headquarters in Barcelona on April 10th, 11th and 12th.

Last March, between the 13th and 15th, the fourth edition of the ImagineNano congress (link) took place in Bilbao. This summit has become a major European event specialised in nanoscience and nanotechnology, gathering over 3500 attendants from over 60 different countries, as well as counting with more than 950 speakers and 360 exhibitors during the three past editions. This year, four extensive conferences and a (big) industrial forum were organised simultaneously, with the collaboration of 150 guest speakers and nearly 60 national and international exhibitors.

To commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (the past February, the 11th), the SCN² led an initiative to acknowledge the work of several female researchers in different areas of Nanotechnology in Catalonia. For that purpose, a series of publications about the contribution of 20 women to science and society were shared in our social media profiles. Segueix llegint
