Science for Societal Progress

By Dennis Eckmeier, Science for Progress

We believe that our current and future challenges as a species can only be met using evidence based solutions. We interview people who work to improve academia, or focus on the interactions between academia and society. We want the people who follow our podcast gain insight into the way academics research the world and ourselves, and how they can benefit from our work.
