- Making science and research accessible and relatable to the public is one of the overlooked challenges nowadays. Instead of putting up borders, we must build bridges instead and bridges can be built through communication. Scientists and researchers must now be able to use communication tools to translate science across disciplines and make science understandable and relevant to the public.
