The new website has been created to disseminate news from Spain and news written in the Spanish language more effectively and, to help promote research from the 200+ research and higher-education institutions in Spain.
The AlphaGalileo Foundation and FECYT partnership will include exchanges of best-practice to assist press office staff to promote news from Spain to the worldwide audience of journalists registered with the AlphaGalileo service.
“Spanish is the second widest-spoken language worldwide and this new website takes advantage of this to reach even wider audiences via the trusted AlphaGalileo interface,” said Stephen Brain, Chief Executive of AlphaGalileo Foundation.
“Working closely with in-country partners to promote research news from that country is a model which benefits a wide audience. We very much hope to extend this model in other countries throughout Europe.”
"We aim to project internationally Spanish research and help to achieve a better understanding of advances in Spanish R&D" commented Eulalia Pérez Sedeño, General Director of FECYT.
Based in FECYT's Madrid office, the AlphaGalileo Spain project will promote research from Spanish–speaking researchers. Under this agreement, all Spanish researchers gain free and unlimited access to the AlphaGalileo service.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....
Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.
The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....
An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
