DeSci LATAM: Connecting Latin American Science with Blockchain Innovations

Project Name:

DeSci LATAM

Project Description and why it’s classified as a Public Good

DeSci LATAM is a public good with a mission to promote the advancement of science in Latin America, by bridging the gap between the scientific community and the blockchain ecosystem. Founded in June 2022, DeSci LATAM aims to make the knowledge of decentralized science (DeSci) accessible in Spanish and Portuguese. We achieve this by organizing events, producing educational content, and seeking to collaborate with universities and research centers. Our resources are freely accessible and address critical issues in Latin American science such as funding, visibility and resource scarcity, fostering collaboration and innovation for the greater good.

Project Importance:

Humanity is facing an evolutionary challenge because science faces many obstacles in its progress. DeSci comes to solve many of these problems, and we aim to raise awareness of these solutions. Our goal is for science to adopt and evolve these solutions, thereby significantly improving the way scientific research is conducted and how it benefits humanity.
