The #SciFund Challenge is an organization dedicated to making science more accessible. Unfortunately the gap between science and society is massive and only growing larger. SciFund Challenge exists to do something about this problem, by helping to close this gap in three distinct ways. We train and encourage researchers in their science outreach activities. We also help connect the public directly to science and scientists. Lastly, we run science crowdfunding campaigns to help fund research.
ONSNetwork.org was created as part of the SciFund training program, #SciFund University, which trains scientists in key skills that would be needed to communicate their scientific research. The network of open notebooks here, aim to make research publicly accessible, improve the efficiency of science, and improve the quality of science overall. We achieve this by educating scientists in the practice of open notebook science.
