~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The updated program for our event “Bridging European Science” to be celebrated on the 7th of October in Lund is now available.

This event is organized by CED/SFD and ACES (Asociación de Científicos Españoles en Suecia/the Spanish Scientists association in Sweden) and the main objective is to strenghten the union and cooperation among the two associations, specially in the Copenhagen and Lund areas, taking advantage of the strategic alliances between Sweden and Denmark through the Øresund bridge.

The event will be organized through short talks with a question round between them and a round table with all the speakers at the end of the day. We would like to highlight the participation of Peter Hartman, director of the Medicon Valley Alliance, and of Sindra Pettersson Aarskold, from the European Spallation Center. These are fantastic examples of Swedish-Danish collaboration in two big research networks based in the Øresund area.

The event will be free of charge for everybody and CED/ACES members will have the oportunity to partially fund their travel costs, if they travel from the outside of the Copenhagen – Lund area.

The events is sponsored by FECyT, Fundación Ramón Areces, Embajada de España en Dinamarca, Embajada de España en Suecia, European Spallation Source and GENOMICA SAU.

Copenhagen, 11th March 2016, published the 18th March 2016

The Society of Spanish researchers in Denmark, known as Spanske Forskere i Danmark (CED –SFD) was born on 2016 as a result of the increasing number of Spanish researchers in the area. The goals of this association are not only to boost scientific collaborations between Denmark and Spain that benefit both societies, but also put an important effort to promote the research carried out in Denmark worldwide. Soon they started organizing successful outreach activities to communicate Danish research to the general public. These events called “Meet the scientist” were inspired by their sister association in the UK. The association uses its network of researchers to invite international experts in a certain field to explain complex topics to the public. There has been five of Meet the scientist organized in the area of Copenhagen; one about Biosustainability with the collaboration of the Novo Nordisk Foundation, Computer Science, Beer Science at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory and Nanotechnology. The last one was about robotics and funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT). It was held at the ITU University of Copenhagen amid of the Friday bar with an audience of fifty people.

The event was opened by the chairman of CED-SFD Darío Vázquez who called for increasing cross-disciplinary collaborations between researchers in different fields, and Guillermo Orts, scientific coordinator at the Embassy of Spain in Berlín, who remarked the support of FECYT to this kind of events.

Robotics is a field that has gained momentum in the recent years so it deserves to be revisited. It is important that society and other researchers learn how robots work and the future prospects. Nowadays, drones delivering packages, self-driving cars, robot vacuum cleaners or robotic pets can already be found in the market or in research labs.

“Robots can be built from individual modules, which perform relatively simple operations, by joining them together. Thus, these multi-modular robots can be deployed in few minutes to perform complex tasks” explained Andres Faíña, researcher at the ITU and member of CED-SFD. He summarized what are the basic hardware building blocks to create a robot and the algorithms that guide these robots, like evolutionary algorithms inspired in biological processes. Kasper Støy Associate Professor at the ITU, presented their work on a liquid handling robot to automate certain operations.

Microbial Fuel Cells are systems where waste-degrading bacterial can generate electrical current that can be used as a renewal energy source. “This systems need to be regularly fed with water or waste. Our robot has been optimized to perform this mechanical operation when a drop of power is detected” indicated Kasper Støy.

Finally, Jose De Gea, Team Leader at the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), and member from the Society of Spanish Researchers in Germany explained the handful of robots they have developed during past years. Among the different examples, he showed prototypes of explorer robots able to navigate through irregular terrains with robust leg designs to tackle obstacles or robots that autonomously can decide what´s the best path to follow. “Some of these prototypes were developed in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Space Agency (DLR), however they still require years of work to qualify them for space missions” pointed out Jose De Gea. A particular robot called AILA, caught the audience´s attention. This woman-like android is able to autonomously manipulate objects and learn from human examples to perform new tasks.

The event closed with a robot demo of the liquid handling robot developed by Andrés Faíña and Kasper Støy and answering the questions of a curious audience amazed by the field of robotics. This was only one of the exciting events the Society of Spanish researchers in Denmark, prepared for an international audience.

[Archivo] Breaking down borders in Research

Over the last 350 years our lives have changed by the application of science, until the point of making it unrecognizable. However, it is not over yet, with every answer come more questions, and now it is a time of challenges and scientific opportunities. From the full understanding of the origins of life on Earth to how the human brain swork.

When?

Saturday 27th February

Event starts at 10:15

 

We are organizing a debate about the effects of the Internationalization of Science and the Partnership between Industry and Academia, with a focus on the Danish environment. We invite international and Danish scientists, and the different parties involved in the internationalization process of Denmark, as well as in the industry-academia gapto facilitate a debating framework with researchers, institutions, and society.

 

Why this seminar?

The Community of Spanish Researchers in Denmark believes that the knowledge-driven economy requires a flow between elements that traditionally have functioned separately: industry, academia, and internationalisation. A relationship between these is essential for innovation; however, it does not come naturally. Our Community aims to create a playground for all the parties involved to nurture this relationship.

 

Call for Posters

We invite the submissions of proposals for posters presentations at the event “Breaking down borders of Research”. Posters may describe recently completed work and/or relevant results of work in progress in all areas of science and technology.

Presenting a poster is a great way to disseminate your work and let the members of the Community of Spanish Researchers in Denmark as well as other attendees know about your topic.

The event “Breaking down borders of Research” will include a poster session for interactive discussion between poster presenters and attendees, plus a fast-forward presentation track where authors can orally and quickly present a summary of their work to all attendees.

The submission consists of a short abstract of maximum 1 page, written in English and giving an overview of what the poster would present. All submitted abstracts must be in PDF format and sent by e-mail to ace.dinamarca@gmail.com with subject “[Breaking] Title of your poster”.

Once accepted, please, prepare your poster in either portrait or landscape format of size A1 (21cm x 29.7cm).

At the event the jury will select the winner of the Most Educational Poster 2016 based on the criteria below:

Does the poster provide answers to the following questions in a clear and understandable (even for people not in the field) way? 

–  what is my research about? 

–  how am I developing it? 

–  why is this research relevant for society? 

–  in which way is internationalisation, and also the collaboration between industry and academia important to this research?
