The Future of Science Communication Conference brings together European actors from research and practice of science communication. The conference will take place online on 24-25 June 2021. It is co-organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organisation for science communication in Germany, and ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities. VA (Public & Science) will be presenting two sessions at the conference.


The programme features key notes, panel debates, workshops and poster sessions. Registration is free.

VA (Public & Science)’s contributions to the conference:

Friday 25 June

9:00 – 9:30 CET  Keynote ’Perspectives from SciComm Practice’

Cissi Askwall, Secretary General of Vetenskap & Allmänhet and President of EUSEA


9:45 – 11:00 CET  Workshop ’Engaging the public in science through dialogue and co-creation –  inspiring examples from across Europe’ (ORION Open Science)

Global societal challenges together with growing public interest in science present both opportunities as well challenges for the research world. Open Science is a way to ensure that citizens are involved in research, and that the views of different stakeholders are taken into consideration when shaping science agendas and research projects. But putting this into practice is not always as easy as it might appear in theory. So how can science communication practitioners, researchers, policy makers and research funding bodies successfully engage with the public, and ensure that their values and interests are taken into account?

This session will showcase a range of innovative methods and activities for engaging the public in science that have been developed and tested as part of the EU ORION Open Science project. Examples include co-creation formats and methodologies, citizen science approaches, art collaborations, public and multi-stakeholder dialogues as well as gamification. Participants will be invited to select between two themes to dive more deeply into the methodologies and learnings in conversation with those behind the activities.
