What are the challenges and priorities in science communication practice that could be addressed by social research? Share your thoughts at the “Pathways to Praxis” online workshop – a pre-conference event to the online Swedish Forum for Science Communication.
Scicomm theories and research are often disconnected from daily science communication practices. Neither scholarship nor practice take sufficient notice of each other’s priorities, challenges and solutions. This is one of the key findings of an in-depth Field Analysis of the body of research that has been produced over the past decades.
As a follow-up to this study, the Institute for Science & Innovation Communication (INSCICO) in Germany is running a project to analyse which challenges and priorities in science communication practice could be addressed by which social research questions and approaches. The project will establish new forms of knowledge transfer and new spaces for collaboration in a form of ‘action research’ and co-creation of the science communication research agenda.
This workshop will provide a virtual ‘agora’ to do exactly this! As a participant, you are invited to help define the challenges and priorities that you encounter in your everyday work.
