Great moments at the ICMAB party 2019!

The N&N members were very active participants at the activities organized for the ICMAB party 2019. We all enjoyed very much the orienteering race, the cooking competition, the concert and the ping pong tournament! Also, the original creations of Amanda, Natalia and Jan were very popular at the video and pictures contests. Good job guys!

The N&N group wishes you a happy Sant Jordi day!

 The 23rd of April is la Diada de Sant Jordi  in Catalunya and it is celebration of culture and love which are represented by books and roses. Today at ICMAB we celebrated Sant Jordi with a book exchange activity. 

Since Sant Jordi is linked to reading, here is our recommended read of the day: a enjoyable mini-review to gain insight aobut the huge promise of bacterial nanocellulose in biomedicine. 

The N&N group wishes you all a happy Sant Jordi Day!
