Research networks

Modelling for Nanotechnology is an initiative leaded by four Spanish Institutions: Phantoms Foundation, Parque Cientfico de Madrid, Universidad Autnoma de Madrid and Universidad Complutense to maintain a systematic flow of information among research groups and therefore avoid that research efforts in Nanomodelling remain fragmented.

NanoSpain, Spanish Nanotechnology Network, promotes the exchange of knowledge between Spanish groups working in different fields related to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience increasing collaboration among universities, research institutions and industry. Provides a frame to researches where show the outcome of research trough a web site and multidisciplinary meetings.

VARIABLES thematic network is participated by most of the Spanish research groups whose activities include the topic of micro/nanoelectronic variability, covering in this way all the abstraction levels of the design and fabrication process. The network aims to provide a communication forum for the different groups, giving advantage to the exchange of experiences between areas and mobility of young and senior researchers, to promote joint research activities.

Other activities

The Ion Implantation Technology Conference Series is the premier world meeting to discuss major challenges in current and emerging technologies related to the tools and processes for ion implantation. Our group organized the 19th edition, which was held in Valladolid, Spain, in June 25th-29th, 2012. IIT2012 also offered an expanded topical coverage to include detailed consideration of the state of art for advanced thermal processing and metrology techniques.

IIT2012 was preceded by a 3-day school on ion implantation science and technology taught by an international instructor corps of experts.
