CIC nanoGUNE Consolider Programme

The project CREATION OF A NEW R&D CENTER FOR THE COORDINATION, DEVELOPMENT, AND MANAGEMENT OF NANOSCIENCE RESEARCH IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY funded by the programme Consolider-Ingenio (MICINN), is aimed to contribute to the impulse and launch of a new Interdisciplinary Center for R&D (CIC nanoGUNE Consolider), as a new organizational unit, in the framework of the NANOBASQUE initiative, a specific strategy designed by the Department of Industry, Trade, and Tourism of the Basque Government for the business development of nanoscience in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country (CAPV).

This Cooperative Research Center (CIC) develops the cooperative research concept that has been successfully implemented in various cases at the CAPV, and has been designed with the aim of creating an effective framework of collaboration to facilitate the guidance and leadership of nanoscience research at the CAPV. The CIC nanoGUNE Consolider addresses basic and applied world-class research, promotes the cooperation among the different agents in the Basque Science, Technology, and Innovation Network (Universities and Technological Centers) and between these agents and the industrial sector, and fosters high-standard training and education of researchers in this field.

Major strategic research areas

The CIC nanoGUNE Consolider focuses its activities on the following four major strategic research areas:

  • Nanostructures Basic research of nanostructures and low-dimensional structures.
  • Nanomaterials Synthesis, assembling, and nanofabrication of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanotubes, thin films, nanocomposites) and nanostructured materials.
  • Nanodevices Development of nanodevices and its impact on molecular electronics, spintronics, nanomagnetism, and nanophotonics.
  • Nanoparticles Biofunctional nanoparticles and nanobiotechnology.
