• CIC nanoGUNE organizes Nano-Story Contest for the first time

    CIC nanoGUNE is organizing this novel Nano-Story Contest within the framework of the 7th edition of the Festival of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology “10alamenos9”. The contest is aiming to promote across the education community an interest in the nanoscale world, the so-called nano world, which despite its minute size is highly diverse and interesting.

  • CardioPrint, new biofabrication processes for heart implants

    CIC nanoGUNE has recently become one of the organizations that drive the Spanish project CardioPrint, to advance the field of biofabrication by developing a novel device capable of generating bioartificial human tissues with unprecedented precision. Our aims are, in short, to design, produce and test new biofabrication processes for heart implants.


    On April 25, the Electron Microscopy group organized a seminar to present to the Basque community the opportunities that will be derived from the new (Cryo-)FIB equipment that will be installed in nanoGUNE.

  • Oksana Yurkevich, first place winner in SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation 2022

    Oksana Yurkevich got the first place for her outstanding presentation on Self-healing coatings obtained by vapor phase infiltration at SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation 2022 Bioinspiration, Biomimetics, and Bioreplication XII on 4-10 April 2022. 

  • Nanotechnology at the service of advanced manufacturing

    NanoGUNE has a team specialized in cutting-edge technology for the characterization of materials and components able to zoom-in from the surface to the nanoscale. These tools and the analyses they enable are of great interest to the advanced manufacturing sector, which can benefit from them to improve products and production processes. 

  • NanoGUNE opens its doors to Ukrainian scientists

    The Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Basque Country, Spain), opens its doors to host Ukrainian scientist who have been forced to leave Ukraine as a result of the ongoing war. 

  • Magnet-free chiral nanowires for spintronic devices

    Researchers from the Basque Nanoscience Research Center CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain), in collaboration with POLYMAT (San Sebastian, Spain), the Institute of Physics of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (both in Halle, Germany) demonstrate the all-electrical generation, manipulation, and detection of spin polarization in chiral single-crystalline Tellurium nanowires. The results, published in Nature Materials (DOI: 10.1038/s41563-022-01211-7), pave the way for the development of magnet-free chirality-based spintronic devices.

  • II Global Graphene Call, business ideas linked to graphene

    CIC nanoGUNE —the Basque nanoscience research center—, BerriUP —a startup accelerator in Donostia-San Sebastian—,  Graphenea —nanoGUNE’s first startup devoted to the production and marketing of graphene— and Fomento San Sebastian —municipal economic development body in Donostia-San Sebastian— have signed a collaboration agreement to drive forward proposals relating to research into graphene. So they are launching Global Graphene Call II, which is designed to develop business ideas linked to graphene.

  • Evgenii Modin's "Microprocessor hieroglyphs", selected photo in FOTCIENCIA

    The image "Microprocessor hieroglyphs" captured by Evgenii Modin, Electron Microscopy specialist at CIC nanoGUNE, has been selected as one of the best scientific images of 2021 in FOTCIENCIA. Congratulations! 

  • Emakumeak Zientzian gets off to a strong start

    The Emakumeak Zientzian 2022 initiative, organized by seventeen Basque organizations to mark February 11, International Day of Women and Girls in Science, got off to a strong start. The launch held this morning in Donostia-San Sebastian was attended by Jabier Larrañaga, Head of Economic Promotion, Tourism and Rural Environment of the Charter Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, Marisol Garmendia, Head of Economic Development and Employment of Donostia-San Sebastian City Council, Aitziber L. Cortajarena, Scientific Director of CIC biomaGUNE, Ainhoa Lete, Co-founder and CEO of BuntPlanet, and Sandra Camarero, Ikerbasque researcher at POLYMAT, as well as the coordinators of the Emakumeak Zientzian 2022 initiative Mónica Moreno (POLYMAT) and Itziar Otegui (CIC nanoGUNE).
