The Communication and History of Knowledge
Taking research results and knowledge into the public domain and entering into a dialogue with society and politics essential to the work of all Museum staff.
We want to bring research knowledge to the attention of visitors to the Museum, society at large, politicians and industry, as well as improving network structures within the scientific community.
It is no longer enough to publish research results and then wait for the results to be followed by action, by politicians or society. What we want to achieve is to take more initiative in transmitting knowledge, involving the public and generating incentives for society and politicians to take action.
It is more important than ever to improve communication within the scientific community. What is needed is a common approach to biodiversity research and an allocation of responsibilities that is understood by the public and by politicians. Only then will we have a realistic chance of using our knowledge to halt the rapid decline of biodiversity and promote sustainability!
