    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.

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).

  • New edition of the CIC nanoGUNE Winter School

    20 students are participating in the third edition of the Winter School run by CIC nanoGUNE. For three days, from Wednesday to Friday, February 2-4, 2022, a select group of students will have the opportunity to find out what the daily life in a research center such as nanoGUNE is like.

  • nanoGUNE Workshop 2022 focused on Ethics in Research

    The nanoGUNE Workshop 2022, organized by the predoctoral researchers of nanoGUNE to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center, has been held on January 31.

  • Science is girls’ stuff

    This morning the Emakumeak Zientzian project, which has been growing year on year, was presented by seventeen Basque organizations. They confirmed their commitment to the objectives of the initiative: to make the activity of women in science visible, to break with the typically male roles attributed to scientific and technical activities, and to encourage girls and teenagers to choose scientific careers. With these objectives in mind, the organizations are coming together to run a joint program of activities to mark International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is celebrated every year on February 11.
