IK4 played an active role at the end of April at Imaginenano, the main event in Europe on nanoscience and nanotechnology, held in Bilbao. It drew 1,400 visitors (40% from abroad) and served to bring science and industry together through business encounters in which over 275 business contacts were established.
The IK4-CIDETEC Technological Centre is an expert in generating and transferring knowledge and technology in the areas of materials, surfaces and energy. It is located in the San Sebastian Technology Park (Gipuzkoa).
