Before some weeks we met on the net with Vera Cunha Monteiro, editor of the high-school physics and chemistry network in Portugal. After some mails we started a cooperation:
The International NanoScience Community, scientific social network of 5700 nanotechnology researchers and students started a new project with student and teacher social network Comunidade Web 2.0 de Física e Química. The Portugal physics and chemistry network with 730 members contact daily bases high-school students addicted to natural sciences.
Main goal of the project is to bring nanotech closer to high-school education and to integrate common interest of a local and a global social network.
The first step is to share our news in both networks:
We hope, this can be a good example for all Nanopaprika-members, the international communication channel is here, let´s use it for expedient things connected to nanotechnology. All ideas and initiatives are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org
As our founder told in one interview: ...“I think the future of these networks is in collaboration and integration,” he says, “The war of the research social networks has begun...only the best, most interesting, and most scientific will survive.”...
