Anna Roig is invited to give a talk named:

The N&N group has a great expertise in producing and characterizing bacterial cellulose, and in creating multiple nanocomposites based on this biopolymer. The group will also be represented by Anna Roig with two more oral communications: 

Phoenix is the capital city of Arizona (USA) and it is also called “The Valley of the Sun”
 

Cosmin, welcome to the N&N group!

This week we welcome Cosmin Cotet. He has already been in the N&N group before, but he likes it so much that he is back with us! 
Cosmin sends a message to all of us:

Hi!
My name is Cosmin Cotet and I am a researcher from Babes-Bolyai University, Romania, who will work for two months in the N&N group in the field of nanoporous carbon materials!

Cosmin will work with Anna Roig and he is interested in applying his nanoporous carbon materials in sensors. 
Have fun in the group Cosmin. Receive a warm welcome from all of us :)

Laura González: From ICMAB to StartUp Nano

After 4 years at the ICMAB, Laura is going to Braga (Portugal) to work in the start-up Best Health, within the StartUp Nano initiative to participate in its Acceleration program. She will spend there the next three months and will learn about business plans implementation. Laura received the funding for this internship through the BoosterWe program.

Laura received a guide from Portugal, a notebook and a postcard as a farewell present from the N&N group. Good luck with your new adventure Laura!

Anna May, the new Communication & Outreach Officer of ICMAB, also received a greeting card and a briefcase for her new job. We wish her a big success in science communication!
