Carolina Moreno-Castro is a Full Professor of Journalism and a member of the Institute on Social Welfare Policy (POLIBIENESTAR) at the University of Valencia. She is also a member of the advisory board of the Studies Centre on Science, Communication, and Society from the Pompeu Fabra University (CCS-UPF); member of the Scientific Advisory Council of the GADEA for Science Foundation (GSF).

She began her research career at the Institute for Advanced Social Studies (IESA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), in 1993. Her works have had a significant impact on media due to her great interest in the transfer of the results of her research to society. At this point, she has been collaborating in the knowledge transfer with the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), and with the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI). Moreover, she has carried out research stays at international centres such as Cornell University (Ithaca, New York); the Austral University (Valdivia, Chile); the Quilmes University and the National University of Tres de Febrero (both of them, in Buenos Aires, Argentina); and at Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts).

During the last decade, she has been leading the ScienceFlows group at the University of Valencia (, from where she currently coordinates and leads over twenty projects of the national research program and European calls (H2020 and Erasmus+). 

In addition, she participates actively in science popularisation activities which are organised by the Science Culture and Innovation Unit of the University of Valencia, such as “Expociencia”, “Experimenta” or “La noche de los investigadores”.
