To tackle the global environmental crises and societal challenges of the 21st century, we need excellent scientific research. And it needs to be effectively communicated to voters, policy makers and governments, as well as innovators.
With my science advocacy project, Science for Progress, I hope to play my little part in addressing these issues. We talk about science, communication, policies and their impact, and how to improve the research environment of academia.
Core product of this project is the podcast Science for Societal Progress, which I produce and host. There is also a rotating curation account on Twitter: @SfProcur, and the Science Progressive Community, where people working on relevant subjects, can send us articles and have them promoted through my social media channels.
My interest in science advocacy was mostly raised through the March for Science. I had been a co-organizer of the Portuguese satellite march. Learn more.
