The Minister of Science, Technology and Productive Innovation, Lino Barañao, participated yesterday of the 25th anniversary of the “Ciencia Hoy” journal, the journal of science and technology dissemination created by the Civil Association bearing the same name. The event was held at the Auditorium of the Argentine Natural Science Museum located at Av. Angel Gallardo 490, City of Buenos Aires.

Barañao: “to have a better country we have to bet on science. To have scientists in the future and ensure the continuity of science we need more science dissemination".

“Ciencia Hoy” was created in December 1988 by a group of scholars motivated to create a journal of science dissemination. Today, a quarter century after its creation, the journal continues to maintain the same objectives as those for which it was created: inform the current status and progress in scientific and technological production of Argentina and stimulate public interest in science and culture.

The publication of this journal is of special interest to the Ministry, since it makes science, technology and discovery available to society. In this sense, during his speech, Barañao stressed out "the success of the Ciencia Hoy journal as the reference journal for science dissemination" and he highlighted the importance of the work performed in each edition, it is prepared by scientists, who try to reach common citizens without distorting the information transmitted”.

Referring to the role of dissemination, the Minister for Science stated that "there is an additional demand to dissemination: lead vocations, make science no only fun and enjoyable, but also motivating to get more young people interested in science". Barañao concluded his speech saying that “to have a better country we have to bet on science. To have scientists in the future and ensure the continuity of science we need more science dissemination".

The President of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET) Roberto Salvarezza; the director of the Argentine Natural Science Museum, Pablo L. Tubaro; the director of the “Ciencia Hoy” journal, Pablo Penchaszadeh; the attaché to the French Embassy in Argentina, Etienne Saur; among others also attended the event.
