CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
Dr. Juan Escrig (Magnetic Nanostructures Line) is among the few Latin American researchers selected to join the Global Young Academy, with membership for five years until 2020.
The Global Young Academy (GYA), founded in 2010 and headquartered in Berlin, is an international organization representing young scientist. Its objective is to train and mobilize researchers to address the main problems young scientists face at the beginning of their careers. Its 200 members are selected for their demonstrated excellence in scientific achievements and their commitment to service.
During the 5th International Conference of Young Scientists and the Annual General Meeting of the GYA, which took place at Montebello, Canada, May 25th to the 29th, Dr. Escrig began making contacts to establish collaboration with the Canadian-based Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS). Together with the Institut it is proposed to bring to Chile an educational game created in Europe to introduce schoolchildren to scientific research. The idea is to generate collaborative networks around the theme of energy and to promote scientific outreach.
Along with two other collaborators from our Center, postdocs Juan Luis Palma y Alejandro Pereira, Dr Escrig will subsequently attend the 2nd conference Recent Trends in Nanomagnetism, Spintronics and their Applications (June 30 to July 3 del 30 2015) and the 7th International Workshop on Magnetic Wires (July 2 and 3 2015), both in Ordizia, Spain, and then the 20th International Magnetism Conference (July 5 to10 2015) in Barcelona, Spain.
