Soapbox Science co-founders Dr Seirian Sumner and Dr Nathalie Pettorelli are delighted to be giving evidence to the government Science and Technology Committee today on science communication.
This is the third evidence session on the government’s ongoing enquiry into science communication in the UK.
The session focuses on science communication as a profession, the difference between science communication and public engagement looking at cultural perspectives and evaluation. The session will also examine the use of popular science and the role of government and the media in influencing engagement.
The panel discussion is live at 1.45pm from Portcullis House, London, and includes two other leading figures in UK science communication, Dr Penny Fidler (Chief Executive, UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres) and Tracey Brown, (Director, Sense about Science).
A second panel convenes at 2.45pm, with Paul Manners (Director, National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement), and Matt Goode (Director of Communications and Public Engagement, Research Councils UK)
