There is a surge in public interest in science, said the head of the Russian Academy of Sciences
«There is now a surge of public interest in science. The same goes for the whole world as well as for our country. And we must not miss this surge. <> I think the popularisation of science will now be easier and more interesting. Let us use the impulse that comes from society to advance our science,» said Sergeyev.
At the same time, the academician stressed the danger of spreading pseudoscientific knowledge and distorted information about science. «Our task, that of scientists and the media, is to strive together to bring out reliable information together in this sea of information. Otherwise, young people, our society may be disoriented,» Sergeyev said.
