ICN2 - Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia

The Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) focuses on the newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale. The Mission of ICN2 is to achieve scientific and technological excellence in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and to facilitate the adoption and integration of nanotechnologies into society and industry.

The patrons of ICN2 are the Government of Catalonia (Generalitat), the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), and the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). The Institute promotes collaboration among scientists from diverse backgrounds (physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering) to develop basic and applied research, always seeking interactions with local and global industry. ICN2 also trains researchers in nanotechnology, develops numerous activities to facilitate the uptake of nanotechnology by industry, and promotes networking among scientists, engineers, technicians, business people, society, and policy makers.

ICN2 was accredited in 2014 by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness as a Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence, the highest recognition of centres of excellence in Spain. The ICN2 proposal for this call focused on the development of nanoscale devices that are effective and marketable. Based on scientific advances in the development of materials, nanofabrication, characterisation, and theoretical simulation, practical applications will be developed in three main areas: Biosystems, Energy, and Information technology and telecommunications.
