Promotion of Science
Supporting the development and establishment of innovative communication activities for the promotion of Slovenian science
Since 2014, we have co-financed innovative communication activities via
Public Call for the Promotion of Slovene Science Abroad. Innovative
communication activities are representing a novel manner of science promotion in
Slovenia, ensuring coverage of all scientific disciplines, communication with
foreign audiences and combining excellent researchers with experts in the field
of media and communication.
The field of new science communication forms has
been strengthening since the introduction of co-financing, it is becoming ever
more recognized, and most importantly, increasingly accepted both in the
research community and in the wider media.
In 2016 we introduced an additional
activity to be supported. Establishment, development and maintenance of Global
networks, which connect Slovenian scientists abroad with their counterparts in
Slovenia are offered support.
