Researchers from the Universitat de València and the Catholic University of Valencia have demonstrated a change of mentality towards gender stereotypes in sport in young men. A research with secondary and high school students has shown that after a didactic intervention from a gender perspective approach, men, who started from a medium level of stereotypes, improved their perception more than women, who started from low levels and maintained their vision.

A report analyses the Spanish films and series available on the main US video services
The US video-on-demand company with the largest number of Spanish films and series in its catalogue is Prime Video (751 titles), followed by Netflix (575), HBO Max (196), Disney+ (116) and Apple TV+ (3). This data comes from a report carried out by researchers at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) that analyses the availability and prominence of Spanish audiovisual works, in 2023, in these five US subscription video on demand (SVOD) services operating in Spain.

Family businesses lay off fewer workers, according to a study
Family businesses have stronger incentives to avoid practices such as workforce reductions, which can damage their emotional attachment and negatively affect their reputation and image in the community. This is one of the conclusions of an international research project, in which the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) has participated, which explores whether family-controlled firms offer greater job security compared to non-family firms.

Intensive agriculture causes decline in farmland bird diversity in Europe
Intensive agriculture causes decline in farmland bird diversity in Europe
A study led by the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) has revealed how the intensification of agriculture is drastically altering the composition and functional diversity of bird communities in cereal agroecosystems in Europe. The research, which analyzes the impact at field and landscape level, reveals a predominance of smaller and shorter-lived bird species, with a reduction in the diversity of parental investment strategies and an increase in generalist species.

Veterinary researchers develop new method to combat malaria
Malaria continues to infect more than 200 million people a year, of which a part of them, mostly children, die from the disease. Over the years, methods have been developed against this disease, from simple but efficient mosquito nets to promising vaccines, however, a definitive solution has not yet been found, so research is still necessary.
