April 2022

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Donostia - San Sebastián on April 24, 2022 for the eighth international scientific meeting around the chemistry of Graphene, Carbon Nanotubes and related materials.

ChemOnTubes 2022

This “chemistry – certified“ event will be the perfect place to share your latest results on chemistry at large on graphene, carbon nanotubes and other related nanomaterials and hear about your colleagues' work in the area. As usual, the conference will come alive around invited speakers’ presentations, oral and poster sessions on the latest research in the field. ChemOnTubes 2022 will last five days, from Sunday April 24th at 15 pm to Thursday April 28th at 15 pm.

April 24 - 28, 2022 in Palacio Miramar, Donostia
Organized by CICbiomaGUNE
Center for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials

CIC biomaGUNE is a non-profit research organization created to promote scientific research and technological innovation at the highest levels in the Basque Country following the BioBasque policy, in order to create a new business sector based on biosciences.

Established by the Government of the Basque Country, CIC biomaGUNE constitutes one of the Centers of the CIC network, the largest Basque Country research network on specific strategic areas, having the mission to contribute to the economical and social development of the country through the generation of knowledge and speeding up the process that leads to technological innovation.

This will be the eighth occurrence of ChemOnTubes after the original ChemOnTubes in 2006 in Arcachon, followed by ChemOnTubes 2008 (Zaragoza), ChemOnTubes 2010 (Arcachon), ChemOnTubes 2012 (Arcachon), ChemOnTubes 2014 (Riva del Garda), ChemOnTubes 2016 (Brussels) and ChemOnTubes 2018 (Biarritz).
Donostia - San Sebastián
Any excuse is a good excuse to visit San Sebastián

Apart from the matchless beauty of the Concha Bay which dazzled royalty at the start of last century and continues to captivate all who visit it, San Sebastián is the scene of a cutting-edge gastronomy thanks to which it has earned worldwide fame, several festivals that have turned the city into an out-and-out cultural phenomenon and an active, healthy lifestyle in close contact with its natural resources.

This, together with its numerous conference infrastructures, its wide range of accommodation and its strategic location promise not only a successful business trip, but also an unforgettable stay.
