Strategies and Policies of Scientific Culture
CSIC organises courses and training meetings for people interested in the dissemination of science, prepares documents aimed at promoting scientific culture and participates in projects and initiatives aimed at assessing the impact of social communication on science.
The ComScience European project (2009-2012) is intended to stimulate the links between science and society by exchanging best practices and regional cooperation for the development of a scientific culture at the local level.
The CSIC was part of the teamwork that developed, within the European Science Foundation (ESF), a series of recommendations aimed at improving strategies to promote scientific culture among European research institutions. The recommendations are available online.
The CSIC collaborates with the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI) in the Red Iberoamericana de Comunicación y Divulgación Científica, that seeks to promote the comprehension and appreciation of the research realised in Ibero-America as well as to foster scientific culture in society.
