The Institute of Physics of Cantabria (IFCA, CSIC-UC) and the Ateneo of Santander, together with the collaboration of the Real Sociedad Española de Física (RSEF), join forces to bring the scientific analysis of relevant aspects of culture to all kinds of audiences with independence and impartiality.
Thanks to this collaboration, which has been maintained for years, a series of scientific conferences are planned to take place throughout this academic year on the
second Wednesday of each month.
In this 2021/22 edition, with full face-to-face attendance restored, the talks at the Ateneo dealt with different topics and featured the following speakers:
This programme was made possible thanks to the collaboration of the Real Sociedad Española de Física (RSEF).
As a result of the great acceptance obtained in the past calls for scientific talks organised by the IFCA at the Ateneo, this academic year 2020/2021 we have continued to talk about cutting-edge scientific topics of various kinds, giving the seminars an interdisciplinary approach.
In addition, on the occasion of 11 February, International Day of Women and Girls in Science, the IFCA organised the cycle 'Ateneas', in collaboration with the Ateneo, where three women scientists presented their research work:
At this course 2019/2020, we will continue talking about leading scientific topics of various kinds, giving the seminars an interdisciplinary approach. Topics such as particle accelerators, climate change or the hottest and deepest universe will be combined with some more basic ones, such as the transmission of love for science from the classroom. There will also be space to treat health with a talk about colon cancer or highlight the links generated between art and astronomy or between music and mathematics.
In addition, as from the year in which it was declared by the United Nations, the IFCA joins the activities around February 11 and the celebration of the "International Day of Women and Girls in Science" organizing throughout that month three talks given by renowned scientists both nationally and internationally.
