Science Connect is an initiative with a scientific approach that seeks to foster opportunities at the intersection of Scientific, Technological and Innovation Diplomacy (STI) and Psychology (emphasis on Cyberpsychology).
Our mission focuses on getting the best out of the mentioned areas and their scientific evidence, through the effective transfer, use and co-production of knowledge, products and / or services to generate a more direct impact on citizens.
To achieve the above, Science Connect offers courses for the Training of Advanced Human Capital, advice on knowledge transfer and know-how that allow improving synergies and understanding between scientists, academia, government, business, organized civil society and international organizations from a conception interdisciplinary.
Science, Technology and Innovation Diplomacy (STI) aims to foster scientific, technological and innovation collaborations between communities, countries, regions and societies with the aim of addressing the common problems facing humanity in the 21st century (pandemics, cybersecurity, climate change, food security, among others) and to build constructive national and international partnerships.
Science, Technology and Innovation Diplomacy (STI)
Welcome to Science COnnect
The most extensive approach to the concept that involves STI Diplomacy is offered by the Royal Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) through three concepts developed from the dimensions of Science Diplomacy, these are:
What is Cyberpsychology and why is it important?
What is Cyberpsychology and why its importance
Cyberpsychology seeks to investigate and understand the effects and relationship that exists between technology, emotions, thoughts, and behavior of human beings.
Cyberpsychology studies among others: human interaction with the internet, cell phones, social networks, online video games, virtual reality, social networks, neurotechnologies, artificial intelligence, online communication, etc.
The importance of cyberpsychology relies on the need to identify from a scientific perspective the benefits or damages that technologies may be having on users.
The scientific community has shown that most of the virtual applications for mental health in the current market have little information regarding the quality of scientific evidence that supports the objectives they intend to achieve.
This in itself is a problem since there is no clarity about the benefits or damages that these technological applications may be having on users.
Science Connect contributes in this field from its Blossom project "Immersive technologies for the increase of well-being" and through advice regarding offering safety and ethical guidelines for technological applications in the market.
