Multiscale modelling. Expertise in modelling is oriented to the computational analysis of material properties regarding specific industrial needs as magnetism, conductivity, biophysical behaviour...
Computational simulation use Genome materials to accelerate the discovery of new materials.
Ab-initio thermodiynamics and phase transformations.
Biotechnology. ICCRAM facilities allow to develop protocols addressed to the nanosafety and toxicology analysis of new materials, in terms of interaction with living organisms, biofilm formation and antimicrobial activity determination and biocatalyst inmovilization. ICCRAM is part of the Steering Committee of the Nanosafety Cluster. ICCRAM has a transversal activity in this field, including Nanosafety assessment in a wide range of both regional and European Projects.
Synthesis of Nanomaterials. Performs the design and characterization of advanced materials, and innovative materials for energy conversion & storage. Improved innovative properties (temperature, coarsening or radiation resistance ...) are synthetized and then tested to improve the performance of new materials in the industrial market. The synthesis creates solid-state route to nanomaterials, by structural, microstructural and morphological characterization.
Sustainability. Core activities are related to Life Cycle Assessment, optimisation and resources efficiency and waste characterization, aimed to develop Circular Economy and sustainable solutions. In this regard, ICCRAM has a wide expertise in Critical Raw Materials including substitution, optimization and recovery for the improvement to address the European current challenges related to sustainability. Additionally, previous collaborations with Burgos City Council allow us to include pilot demonstration in our projects.
