Mission

The primary mission of the organization is to establish, develop and strengthen connections between the sciences and the community.

Secondly, the organization will work to establish platforms and provide opportunities for cultural exchange between Western Europe, USA and the Eastern European countries.

World tensions are increasing and international relations are becoming aggravated, leading to the dehumanization of society. The gap is widening between activities of traditional public institutions and scientific research findings about the perspectives of such activities. The result is that the public is often unaware of the latest studies, analyses and recommendations of scientific experts.

Important scientific discoveries often are not communicated to a wider audience because of political, financial and marketing reasons. At the same time, projects that are well-supported tend to be the ones produced by the so called “mainstream.” This tendency has already led to a situation in which the public does not receive sufficient information about analyses, opinions and findings of different scientists and so loses the ability to reach objective conclusions.

At the same time, scientists often do not have an opportunity to get feedback from the community. We also see significant gaps in the field of education, in which there is a clear imbalance between actual scientific research and educational programs.

We advocate for achieving a full understanding of people’s actions and their circumstances, which should be based on an awareness of the wider social circles within the community.

We want to reach our goals using all the resources accessible to us. We plan to conduct various meetings, conferences, roundtables and seminars that will facilitate popular awareness of the current scientific research, achievements and findings. We will host a variety of public events and implement projects with the help and assistance of experts from the scientific fields. We plan to create and share scientific films, websites, articles and other materials. As part of our activities, we will create platforms for direct communication between scientists and community representatives. Our activities will cover all the directions of science: liberal arts, exact and natural sciences.
