Scientists engaging with the public

This session will stimulate critical reflection on the social responsibility of science centres, museums and other science engagement organizations to support meaningful engagement between scientists and the public. How can we think more strategically about the role of our organizations in scientific culture? A free scientific culture means that people feel free to question scientific and technological processes and issues. Our organizations can increase opportunities for the public to have real engagement with contemporary science and research. Five case studies will highlight the critical aspects of such engagement. Following the presentations, a general Q&A session will help the audience frame a few questions to subsequently discuss in smaller conversation groups.
