What is UFP?

UFP was founded in 2021 as a network within the Danish Statistical Society. The motivation was to gather DSTS members who had a common interest in science communication and broader dissemination of statistics. We have had activities and discussions concerning communication with journalists, writing popular science content (e.g. blogs), and bridging statistics and high school education. So far, we have started a blog on the DSTS webpage, organized two open events for DSTS members, and two conference sessions.

Our guiding principle is that the activities should reflect the interests of active members, so there is amble opportunity to include whatever ideas you have in the network. We have a yearly budget provided by DSTS that we can use to organize activities within the scope of the committee.

We currently have about 4 yearly meetings, and organize 1-2 activities a year.
