THE CONFERENCE WILL BE IN ENGLISH.

— — The global economic crisis in 2008 together with side effects of the globalisation have been followed with social crisis whose political implications can be noticed nowadays all across the world. For instance, the EU and the UK face a complex negotiation after the EU referendum results, the United States of America has moved away from the Climate Change Treaty of Paris, and European countries whose economies greatly suffered during crisis (Portugal, Greece, Ireland, or Spain) are approaching differently their recovery.

In the debate “Is more scientific culture the solution to crises?”, we will discuss whether more critical thinking and scientific knowledge in all spheres of society could be the solution to all kind of crises. What would be the role of scientists, engineers, and scholars? Is there such a thing as knowledge-based economies? Which countries are benefiting from it? How could public administrations, private companies, and learned societies develop more innovative approaches? What History lessons can we learn from past and present crises?

The Office for Cultural and Scientific Affairs of the Spanish Embassy in London, the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and the Instituto Cervantes Manchester bring together a panel of multidisciplinary experts to openly discuss about this topic.

This debate is celebrated within the context of FOTCIENCIA 13, an exhibition of 49 scientific-themed pictures displayed in the Instituto Cervantes Manchester from 24th May to 20th September.

— Tras la crisis económica global de 2018 y los efectos de la globalización ha tenido lugar una crisis social cuyas implicaciones políticas todavía se sienten en todo el mundo. Por ejemplo, la UE y el Reino Unido afrontan una compleja negociación tras los resultados del referéndum en torno a la pertenencia a la UE; los Estados Unidos de América se han retirado del Acuerdo de París sobre el cambio climático; y países europeos con economías fuertemente azotadas por la crisis (Portugal, Grecia, Irlanda o España) están siguiendo distintos enfoques para su recuperación.

En el debate “¿Es una mayor cultura científica la solución para las crisis?” nos preguntaremos si un mayor pensamiento crítico y conocimiento científico en todas las esferas de la sociedad podría ser la solución para las crisis. ¿Cuál sería el papel de los científicos, ingenieros e investigadores? ¿Existen realmente las economías basadas en el conocimiento? ¿Qué países se benefician de ellas? ¿Cómo podrían las administraciones públicas, empresas privadas y comunidades académicas desarrollar enfoques más innovadores? ¿Qué podemos aprender de las presentes y de las otras crisis a lo largo de la historia?

La Oficina de Asuntos Culturales y Científicos de la Embajada de España en Londres, la Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT) y el Instituto Cervantes de Mánchester reúnen a una mesa de expertos multidisciplinares para debatir abiertamente sobre este asunto.

Este debate se celebra en el marco de FOTCIENCIA 13, una exposición de 49 fotografías sobre temas científicos que se muestra en el Instituto Cervantes de Mánchester del 24 de mayo al 20 de septiembre.
