PCST and RedPop sign agreement

15 February 2017

PCST Network is delighted to announce that it has signed a Co-Operation Agreement with RedPop, the science communication network for Latin America and the Caribbean.  

The agreement is designed to promote collaborations and exchanges between the two organisations. Both have undertaken to support each other and, in particular, to ensure that each is visibly present at the other’s conferences. This will take effect from RedPop’s next conference in Buenos Aires, Argentina, next August.

Relations between the global network and colleagues in Latin America have become closer over recent years. Latin American countries have been strongly represented at PCST conferences and the 2014 conference was hosted in Brazil with well over half of all participants at that event coming from the region.

Last September, RedPop hosted a PCST-supported symposium in Costa Rica where PCST president Brian Trench was the opening plenary speaker.

Brian has signed the Co-Operation Agreement together with Luisa Massarani, who was the principal host of the 2014 PCST conference. Luisa is a member of the PCST Scientific Committee and is also the president of RedPop.
