Science communication: EU policy recommendations
The Cities and Science Communication (CASC) Final Conference was at Thinktank at the end of January. The Conference Report, a punchy four-pager, is published today. It makes three strong policy recommendations to the EU. The 80 or so Conference delegates from across the EU said that science communication should
- strengthen science citizenship
- celebrate science and scientists
- promote evidence-based research
They have also made concrete suggestions to EU decision-makers on how these important headline policy recommendations can be achieved.
Theirs is a voice that should be listened to, particularly in this age when science is under attack. Delegates were from impressive organisations in the Czech Republic, Cyprus, France, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Spain and Sweden as well as the UK.
