Movement for Science
Effectively leveraging science to solve society’s greatest challenges requires broad public confidence in and support for science. We partner with scientists, policymakers, advocates, and philanthropic partners to bring science closer to the communities it aims to serve, as well as catalyze widespread public engagement with science. We work to build a robust and responsive science ecosystem that inspires enthusiasm for discovery science, encourages science-informed policy decisions, and delivers clear communication to the public about the value of scientific endeavors.
Research on Public Support for Science
We seek to understand public attitudes toward science so that we can help communities and scientific institutions better understand how to engage with each other.
We lift up community-centered approaches where audiences and scientists work to solve local and global challenges by engaging directly with one another in meaningful communication.
