ICCRAM (International Research Center in Critical Raw Materials for Advanced Industrial Technologies) was established in 2014 as a competence Center of the University of Burgos devoted to Critical Raw Materials. This Center carries out different researching activities in Four principal research lines: Computational simulation, Nanosafety, Electrochemistry and Energy Storage, Environment and Sustainability.
ICCRAM is involved in numerous European Projects funded under the European framework program for Research and Innovation- H2020, among which, some of them are within the excellent science pillar Marie Skłodowska Curie or the competitive FET OPEN, as well as the NMBP Program and Social Challenge 5, related to Environment and Raw Materials.
ICCRAM is a leading actor in international organizations as PROMETIA, European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials (EIP-RAW MATERIALS), the Nanosafety Cluster or the Association of Nanotechnology Industries.
The objectives of ICCRAM are
- To position the Center and the University of Burgos as an European leader in the research lines of biotechnology, electrochemistry, sustainability and computational simulation.
- To collaborate with other Departments of the University to obtain a higher success in European Projects
- To promote innovation in society being the driving force for industrial, institutional and social agents
