Conexões Amazônicas is a collaboration network aiming at:

  • Connecting researchers and the non-academic community;

  • Facilitating data sharing;

  • Creating a hub of scientific communication regarding Amazonia.

Connecting researchers

The activities involve scientific communication through events and publications in social networks, besides creating an interdisciplinary repository for databases, and thus connecting researchers acting in Amazonia among themselves andw with the non-academic community.

The network started at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in 2019 with a science communication meeting, and since then it has been looking at contributing to the scientific debate regarding Amazonia. Although it was initially created at UFRGS, researchers from any other institution are very welcome to the network! If you want to participate, please contact us at conexoesamazonicas@gmail.com, or follow us at FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
