Newspaper La Tercera interviews Pablo Rosenblatt, Director of our Eureka Program.15/09/2016
Local newspaper La Tercera recently published an article about Pablo Rosenblatt, Director of the Eureka Program of Fundación Ciencia & Vida, highlightening his prolific career as a science communicator.
In the interview, Rosenblatt tells about the events that led him to leave his work as a scientist in the laboratory to begin a creative work as science communicator. “I realized that there were people doing scientific communication who knew very little about science and, on the other hand, I had a close relationship with several prominent Chilean researchers that wanted to communicate their research to the public. I had to take advantage of that”, he explains.
He also recognizes that unfortunately, science in Chile is not part of the national identity yet: “Arturo Vidal is in our identity, you cannot be considered Chilean if you don’t know about Vidal. But if you ask people who is Humberto Maturana [a world-renowned Chilean biologist], only a 30 or 40 percent will answer correctly”.
