Last 27th of November, two of our CPT members, the researcher Raisha García and the student Noemí Gavieiro, participated in the NANO Research Night, a workshop organised in the frame of the European Research Night. Moderated by Jordi Díaz-Marcos (CCiTUB, IN2UB, Materials UB, ACCC), the central shaft of this event was explaining what is nanotechnology and how it works, as well as its appliance in sectors like medicine, buildings, energy or materials. For this purpose, this workshop met researchers from several research institutes and universities located in Barcelona, such as the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC), the Catalonia Energy Research Institute (IREC), the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotecnology (ICN2) and the Materials Science Department of the University of Barcelona (UB).
Our mates Raisha García and Noemí Gavieiro talked about biomaterials, Titanium specially, explaining their characteristics, which techniques are used for creating nanometrical layers and how useful are for medical implants. You can watch the video here:
Powered by European Commission inside the frame of Marie Sktodowsca-Curie actions of the Horizon 2020 project, and coordinated by different catalonian universities and research institutions, the European Research Night is an annual event celebrated in more than 300 cities from over Europe. The main goal is spreading and approaching science to people in an enjoyable way, through several activities and visitings. Due to the COVID-19 precaution measures has been celebrated online mostly.
