The Royal Galician Academy of Science (RAGC) and the Xunta de Galicia have awarded the BIOFAST Project the “Fernando Calvet Prats” prize. This award is given within the Technology Transfer Awards in Galicia to highlight a successful case of technology transfer of a research group. Congratulations to all!
We have just finished the 5th edition of the MOOC online course “Biomaterials: from concept to clinic”, our most international edition, with a total of 98 participants. Thanks to all, we hope that expectations were met and that it was of interest.
Today 11th February is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. From the New Materials group we want to celebrate it with all women scientists and researchers and we can’t think of a better way than with this short video made by our colleague Paulino.
“Defend your right to think, because even thinking wrongly is better than not thinking at all”.

Next Tuesday 15th December, the FA3 group will participate in an event related to our EU-Interreg CVMAR+I project on “Industrial Possibilities in the Valorisation of Resources Marines” ! The event will take place in the Centre Tecnológico del Mar CETMAR Foundation in Vigo.
In the program you will find all the details
|Six research groups linked to the three Galician universities that stand out for the quality of their work and their capacity for innovation in the development of their work are participating in the 4th edition of the PuntoGal Spin-Off Awards, and among them is the New Materials group. Congratulations!
New in GCIENCIA
|The FA3 – New Materials group is now part of a new network of groups and centers working in the field of nanoelectronics and photonics based on group IV alloys.
The “Group IV Semiconductors Materials and Devices community” has a nice website, where you can also find information about us.
We encourage you to visit it 😉
|We have published the book “ADVANCES IN BIOENGINEERING FOR HEALTHY AGING” with contributions in Spanish, Portuguese and English that can be accessed via https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.3958933
It is a summary of some results obtained during our POCTEP project “Iberos” (Networked Bioengineering Institute for Healthy Aging). This research centre of excellence for a healthier future was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the Interreg V-A Spain-Portugal Programme (POCTEP) 2014-2020.

Congratulations to all the participants !
|Congratulations to the students who successfully completed our MOOC course in Spanish “Biomaterials, from Concept to Clinic” and will receive their official certificate.
To those who could not finish it during the quarantine, we remind that there will be a new edition next year and we encourage to attend it.
Since its first edition in the academic year 2015/2016 we have had approximately 650 students, mostly from Galicia and the rest of Spain, but also from Latin America. This shows the interest that the topic arouses.
By the way, the videos of the course and many more can also be visited on our YouTube channel.
|Yesterday we finished another batch of our reusable screens, disinfected and packed in the best way our infrastructure allows.
In total we donated:
120 to the Alvaro Cunqueiro Hospital,
50 to the Hospital Clínico Universitario of Santiago de Compostela,
20 to the Romeo Dental Clinic,
10 to local police officers,
8 to the Quirónsalud Hospital in Pontevedra, and
6 to the Dental Clinic Dr. Manuel Peña,
2 to a pharmacy in Vigo.
In addition we have printed and donated to the Alvaro Cunqueiro Hospital aprox. 60 “adjustable Ear Strap Extensions” to avoid the rubbing of those masks that hook behind the ears.
We hope that our small but quick contribution is useful !
Remember that you can also contribute a lot by staying at home.
