Keep marching for science
In April 2017, Karolinska Institutet participated in the global movement March for Science – now it is soon time to “march” again. On the 14th of April this year, there will be manifestations for research and knowledge all around the world under the slogan Science Marches On.
In Sweden this campaign is called “Hur vet du det?” (How do you know that?), and just like last year it is the non-profit organisation Vetenskap & Allmänhet that will coordinate, with the support from a great number of stakeholders, including Karolinska Institutet. This time, however, there will not be an actual march in Stockholm city. Instead, the plan is that we all participate with different activities to raise awareness among the general public and politicians about how research is conducted and why research-based knowledge is crucial for a sustainable social development.
