Experts Share Many Ways to Promote Science’s Value

Members of the scientific community have multiple ways to communicate the value of science to policymakers and fellow citizens, according to experts who offered two training workshops at AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C. on April 21. The two workshops – Catalyzing Advocacy in Science & Engineering and the Communicating Science – were among the many special events AAAS hosted leading up to the April 22 March for Science, including a webinar on advocating for science after the march, a talk by John Holdren, science adviser to former President Barack Obama, and a stand-up comedy show. The two workshops were held at AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C., and streamed live to viewers around the country.

EU Expansion did not Increase Cross-Border Research, Study Finds

The enlargement of the European Union in 2004 and again in 2007 did not increase cross-country research collaboration between new and existing member countries, a study in the 12 April issue of Science Advances reports.Instead, academics migrated from new EU member countries into existing ones like Germany and the United Kingdom. These movements eliminated cross-border links between scientists in new and existing EU countries.
