The Latin American Network of Public Communication of Science is a network aiming to determine the state of art of public communication of science that is taking place in the country and can later be extended to a Latin American network of science communication. To this purpose, the Network will produce a catalog of science communicators in MÃ©xico, and subsequently will be extended to Latin America. In order to accomplish this, besides the collaboration of the members of the Network, we will be getting the institutional support from SOMEDICYT, DGDC-UNAM, IER from the UNAM, Network for the Popularization of Science in Latin America and the Caribbean (Red POP) and hopefully from the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PSCT).
On top of having the Network of science communicators' catalog, four meetings will be held to research the following aspects of science communication:
The Network will initially have an Academic Committee and 60 members, who will work through the different Network websites corresponding to the four identified areas. For the development of the Network, we will look for support from the CONACYT and other institutions that might be interested in collaborate.
