August 7, 2017
Professor Ernesto Santibáñez, from the Department of Engineering, assumed as part of the steering committee that manages and monitors the recently established Food Safety Program in the United Kingdom, an initiative that will channel the financing of research projects in that Country concerning the food safety in the climate change context.
Santibáñez is one of the ten professionals from recognized companies, private institutions and researchers who took up this challenge, due to his vast experience in issues related to climate change.
Talking about his participation in this endeavor he highlighted the possibility of interacting with scientists from various disciplines who are part of a team of 40 specialists addressing the aforementioned topic. "The multidisciplinary way in how the United Kingdom has been able to address the problem is the main reason for deciding to be part of the program. The issue of climate change and its consequences is a complex problem that must be dealt with in this way," he said.
The team that will work in the program is made up of biologists, economists, agronomists, physicists, chemists, data scientists and engineers from various specialties, who will be led by Astrophysicist Sarah Bindle, which for the Chilean academic is an example of how these issues must addressed in Chile.
Santibáñez participated in the launching of the program, which was held at the University of Manchester, where he spoke about the "International Panorama: Towards a Low-Carbon Economy".
