Academy of Science, Vitafoam sign MOU to boost science reporting

The Nigeria Academy of Science (NAS) and Vitafoam Nig. Plc have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to boost the quality of science reporting in the country.

The MoU signing was part of measures to help in maximising the benefits of science and Vitafoam’s corporate social responsibility.

The pact is also tailored toward rewarding science journalists who write stories required to solve the nation’s problems.

The President of NAS, Prof. Mosto Onuoha, said in his address of welcome that bridging the gap between practice and theory was key to achieving science development.

“The major focus should be on training secondary school students so that they will get good orientation at an early stage.

“We are earnestly working on that with other organisations, and now Vitafoam has come in to contribute its own quota.

“NAS’s focus is also on influencing what goes on in universities, especially if it has to do with training of students in the sciences, so as to get the best out of them,” he said.

Onuoha said that the academy partnered with Vitafoam because the company recognised that science was crucial to the country’s development.

According to him, good and quality science reporting would push its benefits forward for adoption into the society.

The Managing Director, Vitafoam Nig. Plc., Mr Taiwo Adeniyi, in his remarks, said that teaching science transcended graduation as it should be useful to the society and at the industry level.

Adeniyi said that there should be a relationship between university education and societal needs.

“This partnership between NAS and Vitafoam, which at the first instance will be three years, will come in form of roundtable discussions, gathering of scientists, media award nights and others, to push the knowledge of science forward.

“The pact is to make a future for the study of science in the country which will come through good quality reportage of science topics,” he said.

He said that relevance motivated the company to diversify to other areas while pushing science forward.

He added that that Vitafoam had, in the past five years, been sponsoring research conferences in the University of Lagos and had donated a well- equipped laboratory that would aid science research. (NAN)
