Having been postponed from May 2020, the international PCST conference PCST2020+1 is taking place this year as a fully virtual event.  The conference is aimed at bringing together practitioners, educators and researchers in the diverse and growing field of science communication from across the globe. VA (Public & Science) will take part in a number of sessions and presentations at the event.

The programme features plenary talks, panels, individual papers and insight talks and well as roundtable discussions, workshops and visual presentations.

The main programme runs over the week of 24 May 2021.  Visual presentations run from 27 April – 13 May and workshops from 17 – 20 May 2021. NB All session times are BST (British Summer Time). Sessions will be available live, as well as on demand after the event to allow delegates to watch sessions at a later date. View the PCST2020+1 programme.

VA is involved in 7 sessions. Hear about the results of four of our studies on researchers’ views on communication; researchers’ awareness and understanding of open science; the public’s views on humanities research; and communication on the coronavirus. Plus join us for roundtable discussions on innovative methods and activities for engaging the public in the research process through Open Science.
