Webcast: Science of Science Communication IIINovember 8, 2017
The National Academy of Sciences Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia on the Science of Science Communication began in 2012 with an effort to survey the state of the art of empirical social science research in science communication and focused on the communication dynamics surrounding issues in science, engineering, and medicine. The second colloquium highlighted the particular challenges with communicating about science that involves controversy, and was an important impetus for the consensus study report Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda.
Evolving from past colloquia, this third colloquium will focus on the consensus study as a framework for advancing both research and practice in science communication. It will explore ways to build capacity for and foster the use of evidence-based strategies for engaging the public with science and ensuring its appropriate use.
Additional support for this colloquium is provided by The Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, Rita Allen Foundation, Science Sandbox – a Simons Foundation initiative, William + Flora Hewlett Foundation, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, The Kavli Foundation, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Burroughs Wellcome Fund and Penn State Science Communication Program.
