Dissemination and outreach

We see great importance in hosting and attending seminars and conferences. 

Via these channels of communication with peer scientists, and with the general public we hope: 

  • To improve the understanding of relations between the scientific community and the public
  • To strengthen ties among and between scientists
  • To get informed about the state-of-the-art
  • To present our own research, and get reactions from peers
  • To share our research findings with people outside our specific discipline
  • To increase the visibility of our research and provide interested individuals with more information.
