    MATERIALEN ZIENTZIA ETA TEKNOLOGIA II. KONGRESUA

    Materialen arloan sortzen ari diren aurrerapenek eragin handia dute gure eguneroko bizitzan eta, halaber, produkzio-sarean. Ez dago eremurik non material berrien oihartzuna nabaritzen ez den: medikuntza, energia, garraioa, eraikuntza, elektronika, oihalgintza, etab. Materialen ikerkuntzan eta garapenean funtsezkoa da Egitura-Prozesaketa-Propietateak-Aplikazioak korrelazioa; beraz, materialen zientzia eta teknologia zeharkakoa da izatez. Euskal Herrian baditugu hainbat ingeniari, fisikari, kimikari eta biologo, materialen zientzia eta teknologia garatzen ari direnak, bai unibertsitate, bai zentro teknologiko eta enpresetan. Pertsona horien interesak, ikuspegiak eta lorpenak azaltzeko antolatu zen 2012an Arrasaten Materialen Zientzia eta Teknologia I kongresua, zeinetan 100 pertsona inguru elkartu baikinen. Orain dela bi urte hartutako konpromisoari helduz, eta harian haritik jarraituz, aurten Materialen Zientzia eta Teknologia II kongresua antolatu dugu. Read more

    "Zientzia egiten duenak bere lana komunikatzeko gai izan behar du"

    Bizitzan badira momentu batzuk non, gustatu edo ez, erabakiak hartu behar diren. Ez gabiltza ile kolorea aldatzeaz edota kotxe berri bat erosteaz ari. Erabaki garrantzitsuez mintzo gara. Bizitza betiko markatuta utzi dezaketen erabakiez, hain zuzen ere. Hauetako bat da, zalantzarik gabe, ikasketen aukeraketa. Hori bai lan zaila! Asko pentsatutakoan, batzuek fisika ikastea erabakiko dute, besteek, berriz, filosofia. Normalean, 18 urte ingururekin egiten da aukeraketa hori eta, bizitzako momentu horretan, askok ez dute bat ere argi etorkizunean zer izan nahi duten. Bokazioak ez du beraien atean oraingoz jo.
