As stated by the Chair of the Network between 2004-2006, Vladimir de Semir, the Academy will additionally look for the necessary resources at international level to guarantee the access to the network of representatives from those countries that currently have to face more difficulties, being the main aim to represent and include the multiplicity of identities existing in the world. The study and practice of science communication should respect the different cultural contexts and integrate the knowledge coming from all continents.
