CIC nanoGUNE wins the María de Maeztu award for scientific excellence
The Spanish Agency for Research has conferred the 'Severo Ochoa' and 'María de Maeztu' awards to centers and research units that stand out as a result of the impact and international importance of their results.
In the latest call, six María de Maeztu recognitions have been made across Spain, and nanoGUNE has received one of them. Seven 'Severo Ochoa' awards have also been given. The new 'María de Maeztu' recognitions include funding to the tune of 500,000 euros a year over a four-year period.
The call has a dual aim. Firstly, to acknowledge and recognise the best centres and units that stand out as a result of the impact and international importance of the results achieved over the previous four years. Secondly, to fund the strategic plans and programmes drawn up by the centres and units for a period of four years to enable them to consolidate their scientific capabilities and contribute towards their international leadership.
