Two-way engagement has been the buzz phrase in science communication for
over the last decade, but how can this process be genuine and meaningful?
As engagement and communication practitioners we regularly connect the
public with science, but can this connection go beyond the transmission of
information? Can we facilitate engagement to actually improve the way
science is carried out?
A lively panel discussion will bring together researchers and science
communicators and will explore why and how engagement practitioners can
implement deliberative engagement into their practice.
*Come along to share your thoughts and discuss whether communication and
engagement can actually add value to science.*
