Spanish National Research Council (CSIC)
The CSIC is the largest public research organisation in Spain, with a main objective to promote and carry out research that contributes to scientific and technological progress. The Research Center on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CIN2)
is a non-profit R&D Institute, whose main mission is to facilitate research in nanotechnology at the highest level of the international arena. The Department of Environmental Chemistry within the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA)
aims to study the source, transport, and fate of environmental pollutants, and also their effects on aquatic organisms and on humans. CSIC-CIN2 has accomplished seminal research on optical transducers, microfluidics, microelectronics and integrated immunosensors. In the BRAAVOO project, it will be responsible for the implementation of photonic immunosensors to target pollutants, and also calibration, validation and testing of the BRAAVOO platform. CSIC-IDAEA, as a renowned marine environmental chemistry lab, will be responsible in BRAAVOO for cross-reference chemical analytics, calibration and verification of individual biosensor modules and marine prototypes, and also collaborate for immunosensor development.
