There is widespread concern today that the gap between scientific and public understanding on issues such as climate change, GMOs, and vaccine safety may be growing, and ample recent evidence that lies, unfortunately, spread faster than truths.
At #SpreadingFacts, you’ll join experts in the practice and art of science communication and journalism for a day focused on understanding and maximizing the public trust in — and impact of — evidence-based research. Advances in science and technology are, after all, our strongest ammunition in facing urgent global challenges, and effective public communication a critical ingredient in ensuring and amplifying research impact.
