    Workshop Especial Event - From surface science to nanotechnology a forty years journey

    Miranda Fest

    This is a special event that forms part of the International Workshop Series launched in 2017 at IMDEA nanociencia under the framework of the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence.This workshop will show how research in surface science has served to both lay the foundations and develop the more advanced challenges of nanoscience. Surface science has evolved from being a sub-field of physics or chemistry, providing increasingly more sophisticated methods and tools for many other scientific disciplines, including materials science and biomedical engineering, establishing itself as an interdisciplinary topic within the new era of nanotechnology.In particular, the progress in surface science has provided the tools and methods to unravel fundamental problems and to advance sophisticated new means to reach both and in-depth understanding at the nanoscale and to develop new methodologies in advanced nanotechnological applications.


    The workshop will take place at IMDEA nanociencia on the 22-23rd Feb 2018, and the event honours and celebrates the 65th birthday of our Director, Prof. Rodolfo Miranda, who is one of the scientists that paved the way to consolidate a solid nucleus related to basic science, first at UAM and now also at IMDEA nanociencia, that served  as a seed to boost activities in the era of nanoscience and nanotechnology in Spain.
