One of the responsibilities of public research centers is to make science available to society. At the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, this is accomplished through a service of the same name. Its primary aim is to achieve a reciprocal commitment between the IAS and the public by promoting, gathering, discovering, supporting, aiding and, in short, coordinating the science to society initiatives created at the IAS nearly every day.
In addition to ensuring the flow of information between the Institute and society, the dissemination service engages with the public, promoting a two-way contact that encourages the understanding and participation of everyone in scientific endeavors, as a social phenomenon. Because of the possibilities offered by the new technologies, the service not only facilitates this exchange of information, but also ensures access to a transmission medium both popular and familiar to an ever more digitalized society.
