Science makes new discoveries through systematic study, observation, and experimentation. The central tenet of the science value proposition is that these discoveries should drive innovation, create new opportunities, and improve the human condition.
Unfortunately, current communication systems can fail to deliver new information the “last mile” to the public in a timely, user-friendly fashion. This can limit real-world science applications and the adoption of new technology. Non-scientists are often determining the relevancy, meaning, and potential value of new technologies and partnerships based on incomplete data and partial knowledge. In these confusing times where “fake news” is competing with facts, it has never been more important, nor more urgent, to develop the skills and tools needed to translate scientific knowledge for the public good and to do so with absolute transparency, clarity and 2020 Vision.
