An overview of the situation and developments in the field will be provided at a virtual international conference on the future of scientific communication on June 24-25.
An increasing scientification of societal discourses indicates that the communication of scientific knowledge will be even more important in the future. While the exchange of experience within practitioner communities is working better and better at the national and, increasingly, at the European level, the academic discipline of ‘science of science communication’ is only slowly emerging in the European research landscape.
The multidisciplinary conference will bring together outstanding researchers and practitioners from across the world. Its primary goal is to provide an impetus for stronger networking and further transfer activities in Science Communication.
The conference is co-organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organization for science communication in Germany, and ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities.
