ReCoNnect: Research Communication for active learning

Descripción del proyecto

Aprender investigando juntos soluciones para nuestro futuro

Las investigaciones científicas de hoy en día ahondan en un gran abanico de problemas cruciales relacionados con nuestro futuro como el cambio climático, los niveles de contaminación, las enfermedades y otras cuestiones que necesitan soluciones urgentes. Sin embargo, falta que el público general participe de forma activa en apoyo de las iniciativas científicas debido a la educación habitualmente pasiva y aburrida. En el proyecto financiado con fondos europeos ReCoNnect 2 se desarrollará un método de aprendizaje continuo y activo con la participación de científicos, comunicadores y el público general. El objetivo es que aprendan a través de la interacción al tiempo que investigan juntos. En apoyo de esta iniciativa, el proyecto utilizará los conocimientos especializados de un consorcio de universidades, institutos y redes educativas de ciencia, tecnología, ingeniería y matemáticas de prestigio para organizar veinte eventos de la Noche Europea de los Investigadores cada uno de los dos años en que estará en marcha el programa, con especial atención en las zonas y escuelas rurales.

Objetivo

Researchers worldwide are struggling nowadays to solve some of the critical issues which pose a threat to our future life on Earth. While everyone heard about the climate change, smart cities, freshwater and ocean pollution, soil degradation which conduct to poor quality of food, or cancer, but most of the time only with respect to disasters or an uncertain future, the researchers are actively involved into identifying practical solutions for all these threats, developing devices and systems to monitor, control and diminish their effect, and to cure people and Earth. These missions will have the chance of becoming effective only by ReCoNnect-ing the researchers to the society, by developing a mutual respect and understanding one needs a will to listen, to be open to the new and to explore. As such, we propose the adoption of a special life strategy, that of continuous and active learning, in which all those involved, scientists, communicators or the general public, are active learners interacting with each other.
The consortium is made up from 5 research institutes, the largest and most prestigious in the country, 4 universities, with high scientific expertise but also including journalism faculties and one public scientific body, that have been participating in previous research outreach events and coordinate some of the largest STEM educational networks (teachers and pupils) derived from the European programmes. By organization of 20 NIGHT events yearly, also in rural areas, and a strong involvement of researchers at school along the 2 years project implementation, we are confident in the strengthening of the science communication and educational programs already developed, increasing, meanwhile, the number of researchers involved in outreach activities. These allow us to look to the future with new hopes of an active and cultured society towards solving the humanity issues through science and awareness.
