Cosmopolitanism and the Local in Science and Nature
www.CosmoLocal.org

Situating Science has helped launch a three year project that will establish a research network on “Cosmopolitanism” in science. It closely examines the actual types of negotiations that go into the making of science and its culture within an increasingly globalized landscape. This partnership is both about “cosmopolitanism and the local” and is, at the same time, cosmopolitan and local.
