« Le journalisme scientifique est d’une réelle importance systémique »

Les raisons pour lesquelles la Suisse a besoin d'un journalisme scientifique fort deviennent particulièrement claires lors de la crise du coronavirus, explique Mike S. Schäfer de l'Université de Zurich dans cette interview. Il dirige un groupe d’experts des Académies, qui présentera ses recommandations pour des solutions durables à long terme pour le journalisme scientifique en 2021.

Rules for economic globalization and the role of Switzerland

Switzerland is small, rich, and profits greatly from globalization. Consequently, it is under growing international and public pressure from those who wish to make the world economy “fairer” and “more sustainable” by means of transnational rules.

La chute de l’agrobiodiversité met en danger la sécurité alimentaire

Ces dernières décennies, l’agrobiodiversité s’est effondrée de manière dramatique : des 7,000 espèces de plantes autrefois cultivées, seules 80 espèces apportent encore une contribution majeure à l’alimentation mondiale actuelle. Il est donc crucial de la restaurer en tant que pilier de la sécurité alimentaire. Une nouvelle fiche d’information de l’Académie suisse des sciences naturelles (SCNAT) compilée de concert avec une équipe de chercheurs du Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) de l'Université de Berne, décrit ce phénomène de déclin et ses conséquences, tout en proposant des pistes à suivre en matière de politique et de recherche.

La fabuleuse histoire de Gelyella

Les participantes et participants à la SWIFCOB "Raconter la biodiversité" du 8 février 2019 se souviennent sans doute très bien : parmi les conteurs qui ont participé à notre conférence inspirante se trouvait Pascal Moeschler, conservateur et responsable de la communication du Muséum d'histoire naturelle et du Musée d'histoire des sciences de Genève. Il a présenté à la conférence, entre autres, le minuscule copépode Gelyella monardi, qui n’est présent que dans le Jura Neuchâtelois.

Oliver Müller – Dwarf galaxies are quite orderly after all

He challenged the standard model of cosmology in his dissertation by demonstrating that dwarf galaxies have not invariably chaotic motions, but can also orbit around the main axis of their parent galaxy in an orderly fashion. This got Oliver Müller the Prix Schläfli award in Astronomy.

Alice Berhin – A new chapter in plant anatomy

People thought that there was nothing new to be discovered in plant anatomy. Au contraire, Alice Berhin discovered a kind of protective layer on the root tips of seedlings. This got her the Prix Schläfli award in Biology.

Prix Schläfli 2020 for the best four PhDs in science

The orbits of dwarf galaxies, forces in materials such as Teflon, tracing history through pollen, a new protective layer at root tips – these are the topics for which the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) has awarded the Prix Schläfli 2020 to the four most important insights gained by young researchers at Swiss universities. Alice Berhin (Biology), Oliver Müller (Astronomy), Robert Pollice (Chemistry) and Fabian Rey (Geosciences) receive the prize for the findings arrived at in their dissertations. Four of the candidates for the Prix Schläfli award were also selected as Young Scientists at the internationally prestigious 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting.

La start-up Positrigo utilizza i risultati della fisica delle particelle per la diagnosi precoce del morbo di Alzheimer

La tomografia ad emissione di positroni (PET) aiuta i medici a rilevare il cancro e molte altre malattie. Un team di ricercatori guidato dal professor Günther Dissertori sta lavorando a una nuova generazione di scanner per PET che in futuro potrebbero essere di grande utilità nella ricerca farmacologica e nel trattamento dei malati di Alzheimer. L'innovazione tecnica si basa, tra l'altro, sulla ricerca fondamentale al CERN.
