Commitment to community service is one of the pillars of our Institute.
Indeed, since the dawn of time, the question of the relationship between scientists and society has been intimately linked to the question of the role attributed to researchers in general.
As a result, the role of the modern researcher has always been divided between distance and proximity to society.
The scientist must demonstrate the interest and value of his research to society as part of his main activity, thereby signifying that he is aware of the social inscription of his activity.
The new contract between science and society requires scientists to produce science that is concerned with the good of people and the environment.
The changing relationship between science and society has led to new types of activities that scientists can undertake for society.
Therefore, scientific knowledge cannot fail to focus on mitigation and adaptation solutions to climate change.
It is essential that scientific research not only addresses policy makers but also contributes to raising public awareness.
It is with this in mind that at AIMS Senegal we dedicate 40 hours for each cohort for GIVE BACK activities.
These activities allow our students to immerse themselves in the culture of service to society.
