Engaging Society and Sharing Knowledge

Our 2015 conference hosted a range of presentations - on everything from citizen science to engaging hard to reach groups, using new media to communicate, overcoming the science deficit model and using "native content". Take a look at the full programme or read a summary of Tweets on the sessions. 

2015 CONFERENCE THEMES

1. Engaging Society: Science has an important role to play in society and we want to look at how science engages various sectors of society, from citizen science, media, policy, education and stakeholder engagement to public outreach. 

2. Sharing Knowledge: How are we sharing information and/or resources across and between researchers and practitioners, scientists, citizen scientists, media and the general public, and how might we be able to improve these processes?
