A study with the involvement of CEPAP-UAB has identified in the Iberian Peninsula a genetic lineage with two lineages which survived in Western Europe at the end of the Ice Age, one of which was considered to have disappeared 14,000 years ago. This dual lineage survived through the hunter-gatherers of Balma Guilanyà (Lleida, 12,000 years ago) and in the first Iberian Neolithics. Read more
The Ecsite Annual Conference counts on one of our P-Sphere fellows
From the 7th to the 9th June, around a thousand of International professionals gathered in Geneva, Switzerland, for the 29th Edition of the Ecsite Conference. This conference is oriented to science communicators (particularly from Science Centers and Museums around Europe) and is open to all professionals who engage audiences with science and technology.
One of our P-Sphere fellows, Andrew Koster, was selected to present his research project on building a computational model of student engagement. As Andrew stated “the audience was very varied, so the conference was an excellent way to disseminate my research to non-specialists in computer science”.
The conference also became a great opportunity for networking, not only with the other Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellows, but also with representatives of science centres who may be interested in future collaborations.
The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, IBB, INc and ICTA-UAB institutes jointly organize for next Thursday March 14th at the ICTA-UAB the Elevator Pitch Competition, an initiative addressed to doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers at their centres. Read more
