Communicating Biotech Handbook

June 27, 2008

"Bridging the Knowledge Divide: Experiences in Communicating Crop Biotechnology" is the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications' (ISAAA) contribution to the field of science communication in general, and biotechnology communication in particular. The handbook distills the experiences in communicating crop biotechnology by the Global Knowledge Center on Crop Biotechnology and its network of Biotechnology information Centers (BICs) and theoretical perspectives of science communication experts. It looks at communication not merely from the act of disseminating information alone but as a process that extends to the acts of engagement and partnering. BICs present actual communication strategies in the light of each country's unique political environment and stakeholder needs and concerns.
