Workshop: The Recommendation on Science & Scientific Researchers & COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought attention to the need for science communications by public authorities. For this, the engagement of science communities to help public authorities fine-tune their messages and get the message right every time is critical. What mechanisms may help inform public authorities reliably about the latest in research while maintaining the autonomy of the researchers and quality research without undue pressure and unrealistic expectations? The Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers is a text that provides the global common standards, and it was unanimously adopted by 195 countries (including India) in 2017.
This workshop, co-convened by RRING project, UNESCO and PRIA on 9th July 2020, was aimed at providing the participants from India an opportunity to learn about the Recommendation and review the same in light of the recent pandemic experiences.
