The research activities of IMB-CNM are dedicated to Micro/Nano Integrated Systems: miniaturized electronic systems which include sensing and/or actuating capabilities in addition to electronic information processing, power management and external interfaces.

The core of the IMB-CNM research can be included into the "More than Moore" and the "Heterogeneous integration" internationally established technology domains, although some of the activities can be integrated into the "Beyond CMOS" and "More Moore" areas.

IMB-CNM is member of a variety of national and international clusters, research parks, technological platforms, industrial associations and research networks.

IMB-CNM is doing research and development on micro and nanoelectonics ranging from cutting-edge fundamental research to applied industrial projects and contracts.

This section includes a repository of the IMB-CNM scientific papers published in journals included in the Science Citation Index (SCI), per year of publication.

The IMB-CNM is the perfect environment to develop a R&D career. Periodically, the center offers pre and post doctoral positions according to the needs of the research groups and the new projects that are starting. The IMB-CNM also offers places for FPI contracts for the completion of the doctoral thesis. In addition, it also offers stays (external internships and projects) for undergraduate and master students in collaboration with the main Catalan and Spanish universities.

The research activities of the IMB-CNM are carried out by eight R&D groups, covering activities from ‘atoms to systems’.

The research activity of the IMB-CNM is organized transversally into three thematic axes and a technology unit. The research lines of each group are distributed in the different axes to encourage collaboration among the entire institute.
