About Materials Science Factory

The FACTORY promotes scientific excellence in Materials Sciences and Nanotechnology

The Material Sciences Factory is a scientific unit that includes several scientists and research teams of the ICMM with the goal of promoting the collaboration and a quantifiable scientific excellence in the areas of Material Sciences and Nanotechnology.

Our mission is to generate knowledge, materials and methods aimed to address and eventually solve societal problems in areas such as Energy, Health, Sustainability and information technologies. The unit will actively promote the scientific excellence in both research and the formation of young scientists.

The unit was formally constituted in June 2015 and officially approved by the ICMM direction in October 2015.

La Factoría de Ciencia de Materiales

La FACTORÍA promueve la excelencia científica en Ciencia de Materiales y Nanotecnología

El objetivo de esta unidad es la generación de conocimientos, materiales y metodologías orientadas a resolver problemas de la sociedad en las áreas de Energía, Salud, Sostenibilidad y Tecnologías de la Información. Esta unidad tendrá como misión promover la excelencia cuantificable en la investigación científica y en la formación de jóvenes investigadores.

La constitución formal de la unidad se efectuó en junio de 2015 y fue oficialmente reconocida en Octubre de 2015. La unidad formaliza la trayectoria de colaboración entre los grupos que integran la unidad. Esta trayectoria está acreditada en numerosas publicaciones científicas y en la participación conjunta en proyectos científicos durante los últimos años.
