Celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science at ICMAB

On Monday, 11 February 2019, we will celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science at ICMAB! We have a full morning prepared with a seminar to discover who was and what did Lise Meitner do, followed by a presentation of some of the participants of the STEM-AMB-TU initiative from AMIT-CAT to encourage scientific vocations to young girls. Do you want to share this day with us?

Feb 11, 2019

At 11 am, Xavier Roqué, Senior Lecturer in History of Science at the UAB and researcher at the History of Science Center (CEHIC) will give the talk: 

Lise Meitner: insights from recent research

Lise Meitner (1878-1968) was one of the great woman scientists of the 20th century. A pioneer of radioactivity and nuclear physics and the first female professor of physics in Germany, she discovered Protactinium and nuclear fission. She features in lists of distinguished women scientists as a physicist who deserved the Nobel prize and who never lost her humanity. Beyond that, what does her life tell us about women in contemporary science? What general lessons can be drawn from her career? We will reflect on these questions building on recent historical research and on the Lise Meitner Symposium held at the Churchill Archives Centre, Cambridge, on 28 January 2019.

Xavier Roqué is Senior Lecturer in History of Science at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). His research deals with the history of the modern physical sciences, and gender and science. He has recently published a new edition of A. Einstein's popular relativity book (La relativitat a l'abast de tothom, 2018) and edited De la Guerra Fría al calentamiento global. Estados Unidos, España y el nuevo orden científico mundial (together with Lino Camprubí and Francisco Sáez de Adana, 2018).

STEM AMB TU initiative from AMIT-CAT

At 12 pm, Camen Ocal, vice-president of AMIT-CAT (Associació de Dones Investigadores i Tecnòlogues de Catalunya) will introduce this association to us, and then, two participants of the STEM AMB TU initiative, will explain their experience in the programme. They are Marina Garrote, from the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM), and Maria Cabello, from the Institut de Microelectrònica de Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC). 

We will also have a photocall in our hall, ready for you to take pictures!

See you at ICMAB on 11F!

When: Monday, 11 February 2019, at 11 am
Where: Sala d'Actes Carles Miravitlles, ICMAB-CSIC, UAB Campus

  • Coming soon! SOPHOT: Severo Ochoa Workshop on Phononics and Thermal Transport

    28 September 2021 379 hit(s) ICMAB Events
    The new workshop on phononics and thermal transport will take place on 18-19 October 2021 from ICMAB and online. Register before 11 October! Heat transport is becoming increasingly important within the Research Line in Sustainable Energy Conversion and Storage Systems (RL1 at ICMAB). Besides the fundamental scientific interest, learning how to modulate the heat flow has important applications in conventional electronics (where heat dissipation at the nanoscale is a major issue) or in the design of efficient thermoelectric materials (where materials with low thermal conductivities must be engineered).
