This Special Issue is dedicated to current research activities on Materials Science in the community of Madrid (Spain) and introduces a collection of con-tributions from diverse research groups working in graphene, inorganic porous solids, hybrid and bio-hybrid materials, biomaterials, and electrochemical, magnetic and optical devices among other functional systems. Some selected images from these contri-butions are displayed, simulating the characteristic habit of the blocks constituting the sepiolite fibers, a very abundant silicate in the Madrid area, with the new skyscraper “Torre Espacio” (©PromoMadrid, author Alfredo Urdaci) as background image.
