Piattaforma Chimica

Come una delle sei piattaforme dell’Accademia delle scienze naturali in Svizzera (SCNAT) la «Platform Chemistry» unisce e diffonde la conoscenza specifica dei settori della chimica, dell’ingegneria chimica e delle scienze dell’alimentazione in Svizzera e serve da base per un trasferimento di conoscenze all’interno di queste discipline.

Qui trovate un breve ritratto di «Platform Chemistry».

«Platform Chemistry» attribuisce grande valore al dialogo sociale e politico, proponendosi come interlocutore e referente per politica, media, economia e industria. L'altro compito fondamentale che si prefigge è migliorare la percezione comune della chimica, facendone risaltare il ruolo di scienza di base orientata al futuro e l'importante contributo per la nostra società. «Platform Chemistry» intende quindi incentivare l'interesse di bambini e ragazzi rispetto alle scienze naturali e in particolare rispetto alla chimica. La promozione delle giovani leve nell'ambito della chimica e a tutti i livelli di formazione, dai primi anni di scuola fino agli assegni di ricerca, è per noi una tematica di grande interesse.

Grazie all'ampio dibattito e alle conoscenze specialistiche messe a disposizione, i cittadini interessati possono informarsi su tematiche attuali legate alla chimica e capire meglio il valore di questa disciplina scientifica nella vita di tutti i giorni. Maggiori informazioni in merito sono disponibili alla pagina Dialogo.

Grazie alle società affiliate, la piattaforma dispone di una rete di circa 3000 esperti. La segnalazione degli esperti è una delle competenze chiave della piattaforma.

Murielle Delley: Prix Schläfli Chemie 2019

Murielle Delley - the privilege of life-long learning

When asked about her motivation to study chemistry, Murielle Delley explains that she has always wanted to know how things work. When it came to understanding what was happening around us - everyday science, so to speak - she was more attracted to chemistry than to physics, for example. Well, that was originally the case. Over the years she naturally also turned to more specific, less everyday problems, most recently the surfaces of catalysts.

IYPT 2019 - International Year of the Periodic Table of the Chemical Elements

The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics and biology. 1869 is considered as the year of formulation of the modern concept of the Periodic System by Dmitri Mendeleev (and others). 2019 is the 150th anniversary of this formulation and has therefore been proclaimed the "International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019)" by the United Nations General Assembly and UNESCO.

Top of Europe: les honneurs pour un site de recherche d'exception perché à 3450 mètres d'altitude

À une époque où beaucoup de pays d'Europe se refermaient sur eux-mêmes, la Suisse ouvrait une station de recherche à vocation internationale au Jungfraujoch. Plusieurs prix Nobel y ont travaillé. En 2019, la station se voit honorée de deux récompenses qui la consacrent Grand site historique des sciences. La Société européenne de physique lui rend honneur dans le domaine des sciences physiques et l'Académie suisse des sciences naturelles dans celui de la chimie.

Le Chemical Landmark 2018 revient à l'inventeur de l'Ovomaltine

Il y a plus de cent ans, Albert Wander a développé l'Ovomaltine à l'aide de méthodes scientifiques à Berne. L'endroit où cela s'est produit est maintenant honoré en tant que site historique de la chimie. La plaque commémorative sera dévoilée le 27 octobre.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 for directed evolution of proteins

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2018 with one half to Frances Arnold (US) and the other half jointly to George Smith (US) and Sir Gregory Winter (UK). The laureates have taken control of evolution and used it for purposes that bring the benefit to humankind. Enzymes produced through directed evolution are used to manufacture everything from biofuels to pharmaceuticals.

Prix Schläfli 2018 in Chemistry: Xiaojiang Xie

He is described as a "volcano of scientific ideas" by Eric Bakker, his PhD supervisor at the University of Geneva. Xiaojiang Xie laughs a little when he hears this on the phone in his hometown of Shenzen, to which he returned two years ago. Prior to that, he had been a researcher for five years in Geneva and Paris, where he launched a career that would make the world sit up and take notice.
