Principles of Evidence-Based Science Communication

Activity: Talks and presentationsConference presentations


Invited plenary presentation at the hybrid WATSON WG1 Conference, 28th & 29th September 2021 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Engagement, exchange and communication are needed to facilitate trustworthy science advice and to inform the public about the scientific complexity of current and future emergencies. Moreover, science communication, according to this presentation, is not a one-way street. Communication and dialogue are needed between stakeholders e.g., academic institutions, government, the private sector, industry, NGOs, media and the public. All of these key groups must be involved in the co-creation of solutions and interventions. Drawing on these lessons, Prof. Pedersen will argue that Europe needs a new ambitious research agenda for the science of science communication that will ensure robust, and socially sustainable relations between science, policy and society for the next decade.
