 Introduction

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are emerging fields that originate from the interaction between different scientific domains as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine and Pharmacy, and their relationship with different Engineering fields as Electronics, Chemistry and Material Engineering. This gives a strong interdisciplinary character to these fields, which constitute new research and development areas with an increasing activity at international level.

The main objective in these fields is the knowledge and control of the fundamental structure of matter at the nanoscale, and their exploitation for the design and development of new products and systems with potential incidence in a wide range of fields with significant socio-economical impact, as:
 

Medicine and Pharmacy
Food and Agricultural Industries
Aerospace industry
Information Society Technologies
Energy
Environmental Sciences
 

This Master involves Lecturers, Professors and Researchers from groups with a significant activity in the fields of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of four of the main Universities in Catalonia (including two of the main Research and Technological Universities in Spain, located in Barcelona) and research institutes in the areas of Barcelona and Tarragona (including Institutes integrated in the Spanish Superior Research Council (CSIC)):
 

·         University of Barcelona (UB) (Coordinator)                  

·         Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the UB  (IN2UB)

·         Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC))

·         University of Girona (UdG)

·         Catalan Institute in Chemical Research (ICIQ)

·         Catalan Institute of Bioengineering (IBEC)

·         Barcelona Institute of Microelectronics (IMB-CNM-CSIC)
