The Universitat de València (UVEG), founded in 1499, initially was dedicated to the study of medicine, humanities, theology and law. Nowadays, it is a modern university covering almost every branch of knowledge. Given the wide range of studies available, as well as its humanistic dimension, it is now one of the largest, oldest and most diverse universities in Spain.
UVEG is coordinating this project through the research group ScienceFlows, led by Prof. Carolina Moreno-Castro. ScienceFlows team is focused on the study of public comprehension of science, the social perception, the scientific dissemination, the history of science and the contemporary scientific culture.
Currently, ScienceFlows is coordinating 3 European projects and 1 national project: CONCISE (Communication role on perception and beliefs of EU Citizens about Science, H2020-SwafS-19_RIA-2018-2019) funded by Horizon2020 programme; PERSIST_EU (Knowledge, beliefs, perceptions about Science of European Students) and NoRumourHealth, funded by the Erasmus+ programme; and ESECO-MODA, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
