ScienceLit works to make possible one of the current European challenges: to promote and disseminate scientific knowledge among all cultures and sectors of society.
Funded by: Erasmus+ Duration: 01/09/2016-31/08/2018
The European Union faces the challenge to advance towards more responsible and impacting science, looking for innovative links between science and people. Making science more attractive for young people, enrolling citizens in research or promoting formal and informal scientific education are some of the objectives under the Horizon 2020 programme.
Adult education can play a fundamental role because it reaches quite diverse target groups. Adult education may extend the scope and transference of scientific knowledge to adult people. In doing so, adult education may provide citizens with the basic skills to access the scientific knowledge independently and autonomously. At the same time, it can bring the democratization of scientific knowledge to adults, because it facilitates the access and provides the tools to the most high-level knowledge and has a high impact in the daily life of people.
ScienceLit works to promote and disseminate scientific knowledge among all cultures and sectors of society. The main goal of this project is to get science closer to adult people, especially those who are in at-risk situation. The way to achieve this is through Scientific Dialogic Gatherings, focused on unemployed participants, especially those who are between the ages of 18 and 34, and adults older than 55 years.
