Promotion of scientific achievements, work of scientists, as well as research and development work conducted at the University are the goals of the new project, whose implementation the University of Silesia in Katowice will begin soon, namely in October this year. PLN 410,000 will be allocated for this purpose. The University will receive funding under two programmes of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education – „Scientific Social Responsibility” and „Excellent Science”.
The project assumes communication of high quality scientific research conducted in line with the ethical standards. Therefore, the initiatives undertaken as part of this project are focused on expanding and reinforcing the message concerning the research and scientific activity of the University, particularly in the field of priority research areas. The plans include promotional campaign, participation in significant fair and exhibition events, as well as promotion of solutions based on the results of scientific research, and even preparation of academic board game communicating science and bringing work of scientists nearer to the users.
The project implementation is intended to contribute to creating the space for exchange of knowledge and experiences between the scientific community and a large group of recipients. Among them are representatives of business and its environment, local, regional and metropolitan authorities, as well as self-government employees. The project includes a series of meetings and conferences organised as open seminars. Their aim is not only to present innovations, scientific research and achievements, but also to support the development of the region based on knowledge and transfer of knowledge to the social and economic environment.
The project “Science closer to you – communication of the effects of research and scientific activity at the University of Silesia”, which will last until the end of March 2022, is one of the activities undertaken by the Silesian Alma Mater for the purpose of science communication and implementation of the social responsibility of the University.
