W – Scientists: wake up and communicate

Corfied V. Scientists: wake up and communicate. Science and Development Network.

Researchers in developing countries must become “communicating scientists” sharing their knowledge beyond academia. Scientists must become proactive, and form a network of contacts beyond their own academic brotherhood. And they should recognise the value of science intermediaries, such as science centres and funding agencies’ research translation offices. They must establish a lobby group to make institutions and government recognise the value of sharing research in accessible language.
