Advocacy for Science

Between 2021 and 2022, in partnership with José Henrique Bortoluci and Caio Favaretto founders of Maranta Political Intelligence, we conducted 31 interviews with relevant actors from the national political-scientific scene to map the main challenges to promoting scientific policy. The goal was to understand how Serrapilheira could contribute to overcoming these barriers. We then took the first steps by supporting projects that seek to gather and analyze data on science funding, combat misinformation, and promote communication about the importance of Science in the context of elections.
