Future of Science Communication Conference

Virtual Conference
24 Jun 2021

PERITIA will participate in the Future of Science Communication Conference organised by PERITIA partner ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Science and Humanities, and Wissenschaft im Dialog, Germany’s leading science communication organisation. Our researchers will organise two workshops and be part of one of the panel sessions. Our lead investigator Maria Baghramian (University College Dublin) and work package leader Tracey Brown (Sense about Science) will discuss some of the findings of PERITIA’s research in a discussion entitled “Trust in Science: Nurtured, Built or Earned?” on 24 June, from 15:45 to 17:00 CEST.

On the same day, from 17:30 to 18:45 CEST, our colleagues from the King’s College London Policy Institute Kirstie Hewlett and Rebecca Benson will be hosting the workshop “Trust in science in social surveys: challenges, measurement and case studies”. On 25 June, from 11:30 to 12:45 CEST, PERITIA researchers Carlo Martini, Folco Panizza and Piero Ronzani, our team from Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, will organise the workshop “Using experiments to fight science disinformation online: an evidence-based guide”.

The two-day event will bring together European researchers and practitioners of science communication to discuss trends, findings and insights incorporating five major topics. You can learn more about the event on their official website.
