HCM in the media: The role of HCM in Tenerife’s society (Kanarenexpress)


Canary Islands’ newspaper (German edited) Kanarenexpress echoed about the 5 year jubilee celebration of Humboldt Cosmos Multiversity last August 3rd in La Casona (Tacoronte, Tenerife). Reporter Sabine Virgin highlighted the contribution in shared knowledge of this group of people lead by the Austrian professor Guenter Koch. The main idea behind of this peculiar institution has been, is, and will be, inspired by the words of the former president of the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, Ricarco Melchior, contribute to knowledge transference using the know-how of, at least “…the 0,10 percent of the 13 million of tourist Tenerife receives each year…”, especially, at sciences.


Since 2012, the year HCM established at Tenerife, the vocation of the center has been to became a truly “melting point of ideas”, raising interests beyond the Islands’ frontiers in foreign countries like Finland, Morocco, Israel, and -of course- Austria, the home land of our head president and main promotor, Guenter Koch.


Last August 3rd, 2017 in La Casona (Taronte, Tenerife), many of the collaborators and friends of HCM met in a 5 year celebration of activities, sharing, not only a brief summary of the activities hosted over the last 5 years at La Casona, but also some presentations ran by some of the HCM regular collaborators, among which we had the pleasure to count with the presence of José Manuel Rodríguez Ramos, the visinary CEO of Wooptix, a cutting-edge technology initiative which has transformed the valuable IAC’s know-how (Canary Islands’ Institute of Astrophysics) in a 3D lens hi-tech solution which has awakened the interests of some Silicon Valley giants as Intel. Rafael Zárate, other of the collaborators who presented last August 3rd at La Casona showed us the oportunities of counting with a healthy soil, not only for agriculture’s productivity, but also in the fight against climate change. Zárate is also involved in other interesting projects, as Macbioblue, an initiative supported by the governments of the Canary Islands, Azores,Madeira, Cape Verde, Senegal and Mauritania, which results could help this regions develope high quality green fertilizers.


But in this celebration, HCM also counted with the presence of a new and refreshing generation of Canary Islands’ scientist and researchers. Young researchers as Alfredo J. Ramírez Díaz and Josué Barrera Santana presented two interesting papers on the future role of renewable energies and massive energy storage systems on the Canary Islands’ economy. To end up, ULL (Universidad de La Laguna) student, Emilio J. Flores Yanes made an interesting presentation on the efect of underemployment and over-education in the Canary Islands’ economy, highlighting the need of a better educational and schooling policy, in order to reach a better -and optimal- human capital asignation.
