Future of science covid-19? The COVID-19 crisis is devastating communities and economies around the world. Alarmingly, this pandemic is a symptom of a much larger systemic crisis. One in which the relationship between human activities and the natural environment is rapidly destabilizing. Of course, science represents the best product of human cultural evolution. And still, it is the kind of knowledge we can rely on to cope with this unprecedented worldwide healthcare emergency. So, let us move on and show you how the world of science will look like in the future.
Here we had an interview with Marcia McNutt, revealing a lot about how science will change. She is very optimistic about it though, and I also believe, just as her that soon enough scientists will go back to close hand-to-hand collaboration in their labs and will do even better researches. The only problem that she stated is that a lot of scientist are not working for their main projects, they are serving another purpose and on top of that their labs are being shut down because of the pandemic, which on the other hand leads to unproductivity which leads to less funding, sadly. There is a lot ahead of us, we have long way to go before we rid of the virus completely, but we are already halfway there, so stay safe and be optimistic!
