COMIC project (Committee of Scientific Instruments), Catalan Society for the History of Science and Technology
Description:
Science is a fundamental part of our cultural heritage which must be studied and preserved. This project was created to promote the conservation and study of the extraordinary scientific heritage preserved in many institutions of Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and the Valencian Country. The Committee of Scientific Instruments has been created within the Catalan Society for the History of Science and Technology with the aim of coordinating the efforts of many people in this direction and, at the same time, providing tools and electronic resources to help in the task of preservation and study of the material culture of science. The aims of the project are the development of computer tools for the preparation of a collective catalogue of the material culture of science, intended to coordinate ongoing projects; offering advice and support for new cataloguing projects; and helping to disseminate the collected information and the status of projects, all for the purpose of ensuring the preservation and further museological and educational use of scientific instruments.
Participating researchers IHMC: José Ramón Bertomeu Sánchez, head of the research project «La ciencia en las aulas del siglo XIX: libros de texto, prácticas de enseñanza e instrumentos científicos» (Science in 19th- century classrooms: textbooks, teaching practices and scientific instruments) and Pedro Ruiz-Castell.

Thematic network «Language and Science»
Description:
The thematic network «Language and Science» coordinates different Spanish and European groups, who from two different fields, philology and history of science, deal with the study of language of science and technology. The thematic network (HUM2006-26465-E/FISO and HUM2007-30656-E/FILO) can facilitate the exchange between the different groups of philology and history of science concerned with the language of science and technology, improving their coordination, and it may be helpful for establishing the foundations of broader and interdisciplinary groups to face the challenges of the European Research Area.
