Evociencia: annual action plan of the UCC+I of CENIEH

"Evociencia" is a project of the Unit of Scientific Culture and Innovation (UCC+I) of CENIEH that aims to bring the research and work carried out in its laboratories of CENIEH to all types of public, and to involve society in the knowledge generated at the Center, developing a culture of human evolution.

To this end, we have set the following objectives:

  • Dissemination of scientific culture in general, and the culture of evolution in particular, from a multidisciplinary and collaborative perspective.
  • Creation of spaces for non-formal science education.
  • Encouragement of scientific vocations and research careers at all educational levels, from early childhood education to higher education.
  • Involvement of citizens in research projects, as well as in outreach activities for a more informed, critical and responsible society in the generation of knowledge.
  • Visibilization of women in science, so that their work reaches society as a whole and can serve as a model and reference for future female researchers.
  • Expansion of outreach activities to new groups, focusing on an inclusive scientific culture that integrates people with hearing and/or visual impairments.
  • Bringing our outreach activities closer to rural communities.

In order to achieve these objectives, the project is structured in two main lines integrated in the annual action plan of the UCC+I: the annual calendar of CENIEH, composed of yearly events aimed at the general public, which allow direct contact with the researchers and technical staff in person or remotely, and the Communication of research results through the media and CENIEH's own channels.
