2024-04-17: Abc reports on Krauss's study about the characteristics of the scientists who have made the greatest discoveries in science
An article in the Spanish newspaper Abc reports on the findings of a recent study by Alexander Krauss (IAE-CSIC, BSE, and LSE). His study examines the characteristics of scientists behind major scientific discoveries, finding that those with interdisciplinary backgrounds account for a large portion of major breakthroughs. The study also highlights a trend towards increasing age and elitism among discoverers, with top universities contributing notably. The findings suggest that by offering increased incentives, science agencies and research institutions could encourage researchers to break away from the prevailing trend of narrow specialization and instead promote interdisciplinary research, integrating innovative methods across different fields, potentially leading to more discoveries.

2024-03-07: Farré, interviewed by "La Caixa", on the importance of gender economics for a hopeful future
Lídia Farré (IAE-CSIC and BSE) discusses the economic inefficiency and social injustice of gender disparities, advocating for policies promoting equal opportunities and shared domestic duties. While optimistic about the future, she emphasizes the need for increased female participation in STEM fields and leadership roles to achieve genuine gender equality. The interview is accompanied by a short video.

2024-01-24: Farré's co-led study on teleworking after the pandemic, widely mentioned in the press
Lídia Farré (IAE-CSIC and BSE) together with Marta Curull (UB) and Laia Maynou (UB) carried out a study for the Social Observatory of the 'la Caixa' Foundation. The study finds that women's contribution to household chores and childcare is very similar regardless of whether they telecommute or not. However, the difference in men's participation in childcare and household tasks between those who work from home at least one day a week and those who do not is significant.
