Nature’s Soapbox Science talks the Future of Funding
The most recent series in Nature’s Soapbox Science blog focuses on different ways scientists worldwide are funding their research in the current economic climate. Tekla Labs, Kickstarter, and Petridish are all featured as new avenues for scientists to fufill their research needs in the face of decreasing federal funding and parallel increases in crowdsourcing and social networking.
As part of this discussion, see Tekla Labs’ text on Soapbox for our ideas on engaging individual scientists as active global citizens.
