From July 6 to 10, the “Dialogue Days” of the European Project RiConfigure will take place, an open online process that brings together policy makers, practitioners and researchers working in the field of innovation.
Exploring the hurdles and incentives of science communication is one of the key objectives of the CONCISE Project. To that aim, the team of the Science, Communication, and Society Studies Centre of the Pompeu Fabra University (CCS-UPF) interviewed 26 science communication researchers (from 15 countries) and conducted one contrast online workshop with 18 science communication practitioners (journalists, communication officers, science museum directors, etc.) from 16 countries.
On the occasion of World Oceans Day on June 8 we held an online round table to discuss about the health of the oceans. The experts debated the current health of marine waters, the problems that their pollution can cause both to the ecosystem and to humans, and possible solutions.
Now available “Generation Solar”, the first platform – soon also an app for smartphones – that creates a unique solar energy community and promotes data exchange between photovoltaic installation owners and scientists. The CCS-UPF has managed the development process of “Generation Solar”, which was born from a unique collaborative process as part of the multinational photovoltaic research project, GRECO.
