Chemistry is the best tool we have to solve the challenges of today and improve our quality of life.
ICIQ research groups work in many different areas, from computational chemistry to the development of industrial processes and patents. All of ICIQ groups share the same goal: to attain sustainability. To find out more about our main areas of study, click on the different icons above.
Here at ICIQ we have a multidisciplinary approach to research, encouraging all sort of collaborations: in-house, national, and international. We also work on Science Policy to position chemical research in the European research strategy agenda.
Miquel A. Pericàs, ICIQ Director, finds that “since the creation of ICIQ in 2004, sustainability has evolved naturally to become the heart of our research. Chemistry allows us to improve our quality of life by finding cleaner forms of energy and new, renewable raw materials.”
We also believe in excellent research. Since March 2014 we are recognised as a Severo Ochoa Excellence Centre by the Spanish Government. We are also proud of our researchers, that received a total of 15 European Research Council (ERC) grants. The ERC’s mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontir research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.
