La Dra. Montserrat Vendrell dirigirà el Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology

• La incorporació de la directora general marca la posada en marxa del nou institut, un projecte científic en què conflueixen el CRG, l'ICIQ, l'ICN2, l'ICFO, l'IFAE i l'IRB Barcelona.

• La seva responsabilitat a partir del setembre serà impulsar estratègies interdisciplinars de recerca, transferència de tecnologia i formació de postgrau internacional dels sis centres que integren l'Institut.

• El Barcelona Institute s'erigeix des del seu naixement com una de les principals institucions científiques d'Europa i vol contribuir a reforçar el sistema de recerca català.

La xarxa de telescopis de raigs gamma CTA escull l'illa de la Palma per ubicar una de les seves dues seus.

• L'observatori del Roque de los Muchachos ha estat seleccionat per acollir els 20 telescopis Cherenkov de xarxa CTA a l'hemisferi Nord
• Investigadors de l'Institut de Física d'Altes Energies (IFAE), la Universitat de Barcelona (UB), la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) i l'Institut d'Estudis Espacials (ICE-CSIC/IEEC) entre d'altres, participen en el projecte.

SEMINAR: Higgs and QCD axion implications for baryogenesis

June 29 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room 

Speaker: Géraldine Servant (IFAE)

Abstract : I will discuss  how strong CP violation from  the QCD axion can be responsible for baryogenesis.

SEMINAR: Dark matter halos as particle colliders

June 30 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Sean Tulin (York University)

Abstract : Astrophysical observations of the structure of galaxies and clusters are no longer simply proving the existence of DM, but have sharpened into a discovery tool probing the particle physics of DM.

Six top Catalan research centres constitute 'The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology' to pursue a joint scientific endeavour

• CRG, ICIQ, ICN2,ICFO, IFAE and IRB Barcelona come together in this new institution.

• The Barcelona Institute emerges as one of the leading scientific institutes in Europe, ranking fourth in the number of ERC grants awarded per volume of researchers.

• Its Board of Trustees is formed by non-profits and renowned international scientists including Profs. Rolf Tarrach (Chair), Joan Massagué, and Ignacio Cirac, among others.

• The Barcelona Institute will promote joint research strategies, transfer of technology, and graduate programs.
