En el lanzamiento oficial del Año Internacional de la Luz 2015 (AIL2015) hoy en México, el presidente de la Academia Mexicana de Ciencias (AMC), Jaime Urrutia Fucugauchi, reconoció que las innovaciones y el potencial que tiene la luz para llevar a cabo cambios en el futuro inmediato son extremadamente amplias, lo que podría hacer del siglo XXI, el siglo de las innovaciones y nuevas tecnologías de la luz, como lo fueron los avances en la electrónica en el siglo pasado.
On December 23, 2013, The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL2015). Championed by scientific organizations around the world, IYL2015 will promote improved public and political understanding of the central role of light in the modern world and celebrate significant scientific anniversaries occurring in 2015.
The Opening Ceremony of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 was held on 19-20 January 2015 at UNESCO HQ in Paris, France.
The two-day event gathered over 1,000 participants comprising international diplomats and decision-makers, Nobel laureates, CEOs, and science and industry leaders from across the globe.
