Science communication

Understanding who science is for

Scientists are not just obligated to communicate their research and other scientific advances to the rest of society in a one-way flow of information. Rather, they should be aiming to engage non-scientists in meaningful two-way dialogue, helping to create a society in which science is not only better understood, but also challenged, contested, and collaborative.

Our research is concerned with helping to establish such dialogue in a meaningful way. Working with a variety of different publics, from academics and activists to policymakers and local community groups we seek to understand how science is communicated, and who stands to benefit from such engagements.
