Els recursos limitats de la recerca i la universitat, segons Andreu Mas-Colell

El que va ser conseller d’Economia i Coneixement de la Generalitat de Catalunya, Andreu Mas-Colell, va protagonitzar una conferència a l’Espai Ciència de València , un programa d’activitats patrocinat per l’Institut d’Estudis Catalans, Acció Cultural del País Valencià i la Càtedra de Divulgació de la Ciència/Unitat de Cultura Científica de la Universitat de València.

En l’acte, Mas-Colell es va referir a les experiències sobretot catalanes (ICREA, programa Serra-Hunter, Doctorats Industrials, Centres CERCA, etc.) i va analitzar les claus de la investigació, així com les limitacions normatives de ser una comunitat autònoma.

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
