As the end of his secondment approaches, IONBIKE secondee Matias Picchio, an experienced researcher from CONICET – Universidad de Santa Fe, was invited to deliver a lecture within the POLYMAT seminar series 2021/2022. The title of Matias´talk was “Natual deep eutectic solvents as emerging low-cost electrolytes for seigning ionic soft materials”. Thanks for sharing your […]

Busy secondment times at UPV/EHU 🙂 Ana Aguzin (pictured left) , an ESR from CONICET-Universidad del Litoral (Argentina) has recently joined the Innovative Polymers Group of David Mecerreyes at POLYMAT (Spain). Her colleague Matias Picchio (pictured right), who is slowly moving towards the end of his secondment, welcomed her at this side of the Atlantic […]

UPV/EHU is delighted to welcome Gonzalo Cagnetta as one of the first IONBIKE secondees of 2022. Gonzalo, an ESR from CONICET-Universidad de Rio Cuarto (Argentina) will be spending 6 months under the supervision of David Mecerreyes at POLYMAT (Spain). His research activity will focus on the synthesis and characterisation of conjugated polymers for application in […]

Almost one year after her arrival in Spain, Antonela Gallastegui (pictured right), an experienced researcher at POLYMAT, travelled back to Argentina recently to carry out a secondment at CONICET-Universidad de Rio Cuarto, where she was once an Early Stage Researcher. Antonela keeps working in the synthesis of iongels based on biocompatible ionic liquids, and during […]

University of The Basque Country is delighted to have Isabel del Agua, an Experienced Researcher from PANAXIUM (France), back at the POLYMAT premises. This is the third time Isabel visits San Sebastián within the IONBIKE project. She´s working towards the synthesis of fluorinated polymers used in photolitography processes for the fabrication of bioelectronic devices. Come […]

We´re coming to the last days of a short (but sweet) secondment by Naroa LĂłpez (right), an Early Stage Researcher from POLYMAT (Spain), at Panaxium (France), where she´s been exploring the processability and applications of some of the materials she had developed. Good news is that this is not the end of Naroa and Panaxium´s […]

Xabier Lopez de Pariza, an Early Stage Researcher from POLYMAT-University of the Basque Country (Spain), travelled all the way to UCIMED (Costa Rica) for a one-month stay in August. This secondment emerged from Erick Cordero´s stay in San Sebastian, where new opportunities for collaboration and knowledge transfer were identified. As part of his stay in […]

Daniela Minudri, an Experienced Researcher from CONICET-Universidad de Rio Cuarto (Argentina), is back to UPV/EHU (Spain). Having successfully completed a secondment in 2019, Daniela has been willing to return to POLYMAT to work under the supervision of David Mecerreyes. She will be exploring new routes towards the development of iongels for biolectronic applications. Welcome back, […]

Dr. Matias Picchio, an experienced researcher from CONICET-Universidad del Litoral (Argentina), is spending six months at POLYMAT-University of the Basque Country (Spain). In collaboration with our project coordinator Dr. David Mecerreyes’s group, Matias will be generating new knowledge for the synthesis and characterisation and processing of innovative iongels for bioelectronics. Enjoy your stay in San […]

Amid the current difficult times for the mobility of researchers all around the globe, our coordinator University of the Basque Country (Spain) is delighted to host Erick Cordero, an Early Stage Researcher from UCIMED (Costa Rica), at their premises. Erick fought against all the odds to make his way to San Sebastián, where he will […]
