El CeLGyP se conforma en 1996 como el primer nodo latinoamericano de The Millennium Project Global Future Studies and Research , a efectos de promover la difusión y consolidación del proyecto con la creación de nuevos nodos en la región. Logrado este primer propósito, constituye al presente el Nodo Argentino participando especialmente en las iniciativas regionales del MP.http://www.millennium-project.org/
Objective In this study, Argentine health researchers were surveyed regarding their perceptions of facilitators and barriers to evidence-based policymaking in Argentina, as well as their publication activities, and research environment satisfaction. Methods A self-administered online survey was sent to health researchers in Argentina. The survey questions were based on a preceding qualitative study of Argentine health researchers, as well as the scientific literature. Results Of the 647 researchers that were reached, 226 accessed the survey, for a response rate of 34.9%. Over 80% of researchers surveyed had never been involved in or contributed to decision-making, while over 90% of researchers indicated they would like to be involved in the decision-making process. Decision-maker self-interest was perceived to be the driving factor in the development of health and healthcare policies. Research conducted by a research leader was seen to be the most influential factor in influencing health policy, followed by policy relevance of the research. With respect to their occupational environment, researchers rated highest and most favourably the opportunities available to present, discuss and publish research results and their ability to further their education and training. Argentine researchers surveyed demonstrated a strong interest and willingness to contribute their work and expertise to inform Argentine health policy development. Conclusion Despite Argentina’s long scientific tradition, there are relatively few institutionalized linkages between health research results and health policymaking. Based on the results of this study, the disconnect between political decision-making and the health research system, coupled with fewer opportunities for formalized or informal researcher/decision-maker interaction, contribute to the challenges in evidence informing health policymaking in Argentina. Improving personal contact and the building of relationships between researchers and policymakers in Argentina will require taking into account researcher perceptions of policymakers, as highlighted in this study.
Las tecnofinanzas—o FinTech en inglés— están cambiando el sector financiero (i) en todo el mundo. También están facilitando que los servicios financieros lleguen a las familias de bajos ingresos que no han tenido los recursos para poder pagarlos o tener acceso a ellos. Las posibilidades y el impacto son muy amplios, como lo es el potencial de mejorar las condiciones de vida en los países en desarrollo. Las finanzas comienzan a funcionar de modo diferente; hay nuevas maneras de recopilar, procesar y usar la información, que es la moneda principal del sector financiero. Un conjunto totalmente nuevo de actores empieza a operar en este sector. Por consiguiente, todas las áreas financieras —incluidos los sistemas de pago y la infraestructura, el crédito para los consumidores y las pymes, y los seguros— están cambiando.
June 2016, China Water Risk publishes report 'Rare Earths: Shades Of Grey - Can China continue to fuel our clean and smart future?' The report looks behind clean energy & smart tech, to find shades of grey and a black market lurking upstream in the global supply of rare earths. The mining & processing of these have resulted in contaminated drinking water sources, “cancer villages” and toxic e-waste in China. Can we build a clean & smart future on toxic rare earths?
The brain’s limited capacity to regenerate triggered the belief that neurogenesis — the birth of new brain cells — ceased after embryonic development. In the latter half of the 20th century, scientists found new cells are born in the brain throughout life. Today this knowledge is helping scientists understand learning and memory.
