The global science communication community will come together for the international conference Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) 2023 in Rotterdam. VA is involved in several sessions at the event.

The PCST conference takes place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, between Tuesday 11 – Friday 14 April 2023.

The theme of this year’s conference is Creating common ground. This supports the idea of a collaborative network of researchers and practitioners in science communication who study or work within the domains of science journalism, engagement, citizen science, informal science education and innovation.

VA is involved in eight sessions during the conference, presenting results and insights from a number of our studies and activities.
