The Graduate Institute of electrochemistry at the University of Alicante is a center of research and teaching, non-profit, directed to the theoretical and practical expertise in the field of electrochemistry.
Its main aims are the planning, promotion, implementation and dissemination of research activities in the areas of Fundamental and applied electrochemistry, as well as boost the training of research personnel specializing in electrochemistry.
Although recently created as such, the Institute of electrochemistry continues the research carried out by the Department of physical chemistry at the University of Alicante since 1983. This research ranges from the study of the basic aspects of the electrochemistry of surfaces until the development of electrochemistry Industrial projects in collaboration with national and foreign companies.
The activity of the members of the Institute has made it possible to establish special relations with the scientific community interested in the various aspects of electrochemistry. This situation favours the future development of the Centre as Interuniversity Institute, where researchers of other universities and research centres can join.
