The SINC agency (acronym for Servicio de Información y Noticias Científicas) is the scientific news agency of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology and was launched in 2008. The agency has a team of journalists and communicators specialized in science, technology and innovation who produce news, reports, interviews and audiovisual materials (videos, photographs, illustrations and infographics).
All contents produced by SINC have a Creative Commons 4.0 licence, which means that they can be copied, distributed, publicly communicated, changed and be used commercially, as long as SINC is quoted as a source.
SINC offers its service to journalists, scientists and citizens to shed light on the latest, most relevant scientific developments, with special emphasis on Spanish studies.
The agency’s production of information enjoys the participation of the research community, who assist with the revision of publications: breaking news, accuracy and veracity best describe our identity.
The Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) is a public foundation dependent on the Ministry of Science and Innovation whose mission is to strengthen the link between science and society through actions that promote open and inclusive science, culture and science education.
