The Science Network can connect you with other experts to help you learn and work together on the issues you care about the most, resources to set up your own team of likeminded scientist-advocates, national networks of engaged scientists who partner with the Science Network, an online community where Science Network members learn from and support one another, and so much more.
Connect with other scientist advocates to learn and grow together on the issues you care about. Learn more about Science Network Leadership Development initiatives and opportunities.

By working in collaboration with our partners, the UCS Science Network wants to build power and broader cultural support for scientist engagement across the scientific community. Learn about what we can accomplish together, and read about the principles we bring to our partnerships.
By partnering with communities, scientists have a tremendous opportunity to improve community access to technical information. Scientist-community partnerships can help level the playing field for communities that are being shut out of important policy discussions. Read more about how to build equitable partnerships.
