CSIC is the acronym for Spanish National Council for Research. After drawing a
very general picture of the research organization in Spain, with some qualitative
and quantitative data to frame the CSIC, the talk will concentrate in
microelectronics-microsystems and the emerging nano activities within CNM -
National Center for Microelectronics, one of the main institution belonging to
CSIC. The "nano" activities are clustered with similar and complementary skills
and knowledge coming from other research entities located, as CNM, in the
Bellaterra-pole (campus Autonomous University of Barcelona). All this ongoing
activities and the short and medium term plans will be depicted.
