Networking and Promoting Science

Forschung und Gesellschaft
Scientists shape societal developments in a decisive manner and contribute to the identification and solving of problems. As such, science’s foundation in society is of central importance for its effectiveness. This is why, if possible, all sections of society should be able to appreciate, understand, and – in some way, shape, or form – take part in science and its contribution to society.
At the same time, it is important to network the various players in and around the scientific community with each other – be it across borders, across disciplines, or across sectors – so that they can inspire, help, and learn from one another.
Good scientific journalism acts as an agent for knowledge of facts, understanding of complex interconnections, and creates transparency in the scientific system, but also enables an independent and constructively critical perspective of research and its role in society. It allows for the qualified participation of well-informed citizens in public discussions and decision-making processes. In turn, for children and young people with diverse sociogeographic backgrounds and various education levels in particular, it is other instruments that make it possible for them to access and take part in science.
We promote a diverse range of ways to promote science, especially high-quality scientific journalism and projects that bring young and diverse audiences into contact with science. Additionally, we support the networking of science, society, and research policy.
