November 26, 2021
The great scientific meeting of SOMMa alliance, network of Severo Ochoa Centers and María de Maeztu Units, "100xCiencia.5: International dimension of science", will be held this Friday and Saturday in Santiago de Compostela. It is a forum where researchers and managers from 57 Spanish centers with this certification of excellence will share with journalists and specialized communicators a space to think together of the need for international cooperation for scientific and social progress of humanity in the 21st century. The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE), mixed center of the University of Santiago (USC) and the Xunta de Galicia, acts as the host institution in the fifth edition of the series 100xScience.
The Institute of Physics of Cantabria (IFCA, CSIC-UC), participates in this congress with the presence of its Director, José Manuel Gutiérrez, who will present the Interactive Atlas of the IPCC in the talk entitled: "Large infrastructures for climate predictions: Insights from the IPCC Interactive Atlas", included in the thematic section 'Climate Crisis', at 6:30 p.m. this Friday. He will share a session with Juan Manuel López, from the Catalan Institute of Human Paleoecology and Social Evolution (IPHES), and Aurelio Tobías, from the Institute for Environmental Diagnosis and Water Studies (IDAEA).
100xCiencia.5 includes a program of four thematic sessions: Cosmos, Covid, Climate Crisis and Scientific Culture. The aims are to highlight the importance of equipping with large international infrastructures, both physical and communication or cooperation, to respond to scientific challenges and social of such magnitude that only these global solutions appear as viable. The health crisis of COVID-19 has clearly revealed this need and urgency for cooperation to find a vaccine and solve problems that affect all humanity, without distinctions of any kind. In Cosmos, Covid and Climate Crisis sessions, the latest works and the most cutting-edge lines of research will be presented by researchers of international prestige. Fabiola Gianotti, CEO of CERN, will open Cosmos session by videoconference.
What is 100xScience.5?
100xCiencia.5 is the forum to promote and establish joint communication strategies between the centers and units of the SOMMa network, a seal created by the Government of Spain in 2011 to assess those institutions that stood out for their research excellence and provide them with specific funding during the four years that the accreditation lasts. 100xCiencia.5 is organized by the Galician Institute of High Energy Physics (IGFAE) and the SOMMa network.
The congress can be followed live on IGFAE's YouTube channel.
