Your Local Tech
Community

Science often has the reputation
of operating out of the ivory tower.
To build trust in innovation and address the complex challenges of our time, we need new ways to build bridges between science and society and inspire younger generations to get actively involved.
How can we make innovation trustworthy, attractive, and accessible to everyone?
