The Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of the University of Barcelona (IN2UB) is preparing to host the Catalan final of the 10alamenos9 Festival nanorelats competition. This unique event celebrates creativity and innovation in the field of nanotechnology by bringing together the best young literary talent in Catalonia.

After receiving ninety-nine stories from all over Catalonia, the ten best in each category (category A corresponds to compulsory secondary education (ESO), and category B to upper secondary education (batxillerat)) will compete for the honour of being recognised as the best nanorelat writers. The winners and runners-up will receive the opportunity to participate in the international phase of the competition, organised by the Institute of Micro and Nanoelectronics of the Spanish National Research Council (IMN-CSIC).

Participants have shown their ability to condense complex nanotechnology concepts into captivating stories of less than 200 words.

The IN2UB is not alone in this initiative: it has the collaboration of the UB Institute of Education Sciences (ICE), as well as the support of the Catalonia Energy Research Institute (IREC), the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), the College of Chemists and the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB).
