Open science - best practice in sharing the research process with the public
    Saturday July 14, 2012 10:45am - 12:15pm @ Wicklow Hall 2A

    More than ever it is important for society to comprehend the processes of science. Science is all around us, and our communal past is being studied and our future developed in research laboratories. It is vital that the general public be given the opportunity to comprehend the aspects of science and technology that affect our daily lives. But how is it possible to give lay people an insight into the processes and methods of today's research? How much of scientific content and concepts can be conveyed? How can the public be enabled to participate in the scientific process?
    In this session five speakers will introduce their institutions' individual approach for bringing science to the public. They come from museums and science centres as well as from the research community and share a wide experience of effective and innovative methods of communicating science in their fields and providing the public access even to cutting edge research. Speakers will define their positions on boundary conditions for developing an effective dialogue on science between public and researchers and also the limits of this endeavour. In addition, they will discuss the degree of scientific literacy that can be developed in the dialogue between researchers and the public and how scientific culture in society can be promoted.
