Scicomm researchers and science communicators bridging the divide

Researchers are increasingly realising the importance and benefit of communicating their findings. At the same time, the credibility of research results and the relevance of the scientific method are being questioned in several parts of the world. In light of these contrary trends, it is becoming even more vital that research is communicated.

In an open democratic society, various societal actors and citizens need to have easy access to scientific conclusions and findings and to know how research is being conducted. Science communication as a scientific discipline has important findings to draw upon. However, collaborations between researchers and practitioners in science communication are limited. Recent studies suggest that there is a 'double-disconnect' between scholarship and practice and between the different disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. Empirical studies support this.

How can researchers and science communication practitioners work together to improve and increase the impact of science communication and public engagement? How can they better acknowledge each others experiences and skills? And how is digitalisation changing the way they work and how research is communicated to the public? This session will explore ways to improve knowledge sharing between the two groups.
