Science communication in progress
– from information-sharing to participation
There is a growing international trend towards increased dialogue, involving different stakeholders and the public, during the research process. Concepts, such as Responsible Research and Innovation, Citizen science, Open science, Stakeholder involvement, etc. are increasingly heard in the public debate.
What does this mean for science communication? Do we need to develop new approaches and methods to create more dialogue-based communication? How far have we come in Sweden? Be inspired and discuss these exciting developments!
