Master Class in science engagement and policy making

Science plays a vital role in nearly every aspect of our lives, yet across the community and in government, misunderstandings still flourish and support for science is highly variable. This is despite a wealth of evidence about the best ways to engage the public, politicians and policymakers. This one-day master class with leaders in the field will help you underpin your work with evidence, apply best practice, and bridge the gap between the theory and practice of science communication and policy-making. In each session, a leading scholar will pair with a successful practitioner working at the front line of science engagement to discuss practical approaches, research and future directions.

Convened by Australia’s National Committee for History and Philosophy of Science, this workshop is ideal for science policymakers and communicators, scientists, and academics working in science policy development and communication.
