The University of Burgos (UBU) was founded in 1994 and has assumed its role in the local and regional economy and in the larger scientific development responding to market demands and developing wide research networks. UBU has 67 research groups classified in five main research fields: Sciences, Social sciences, Engineering-Construction, Humanities and Health sciences. These Research groups have a consolidated prestige not only at national but also at international level with a relevant number of publications in the prestige research journals.
In NanoBat, the International Research Center in Critical Raw Materials for Advanced Industrial Technologies (ICCRAM) is involved. It is a part of the Science and Technology Park, consisting of ICCRAM, the Research Center in Food Biotechnology (CIBA), the Center for Innovation and Research in Industrial Technology (CITI), as well as a new experimental facility in Applied Nanotechnology, and Nano/Toxicity. ICCRAM was established in 2014 conceived to integrate within its structure an "intrinsic path into innovation", and it is supported by an industrial board of more than 26 industries, SMEs and clusters. ICCRAM is a leading actor in international organizations as PROMETIA, the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials, the Nanosafety Cluster or the International Association of Nanotechnology Industries.
UBU is the leader of NanoBat’s WP2 with a particular focus on electrochemical scanning droplet cell-based evaluation of SEI properties and comparison to SECM. With their work, UBU will facilitate the bridging of multi-frequency investigations and elucidate the underlying chemical and physical principles of SEI failure and ageing processes as the basis for accelerated sensing.
