• “Research communication” -Miquel Duran (in English). Wednesday 15th of July from 4.20 pm to 6 pm
Science communication and dissemination is a key task of people devoted to science. Indeed, it is not at all easy to comunicate, disseminate, promote or vertebrate science, because scientific knowledge implies a reflection on the facts of Nature leading to possess curiosity enough to know about the laws of the universe and ask oneselves several questions like: Why are things this way? Why are things not this way? Why can't things be otherwise? What if...? Moreover, one must be able to answer a question placed by many people: So what ...?
Which are the reasons that we may find, justified indeed, to not communicate or disseminate science, especially using digital tools? For instance, those five: I don't have anything interesting to explain. I don't have money. I have neither time nor energy. I am not fluent digital tools. Nobody values me.
This session will deal with these subjects, which will be contextualized within post-COVID-19 society and considering especially young researchers, while commenting how open science is a tool and an attitude that facilitates social communication of science.
