Science Public Engagement Partnership, in collaboration with the Kavli Foundation and DOE, is hosting a free 2-day symposium on Communicating the future: Engaging the Public in Basic Science.

This fully virtual event will begin on July 27th and continue through July 28th. SciPEP has an excellent agenda that includes keynotes and over 60 interactive and informative poster booths. They will invite all registrants to visit their site on July 26 to review conference materials and tour our virtual offerings.  

This virtual conference will explore the unique characteristics of the relationship between the public and basic research, drawing from the experience and expertise of our colleagues in the science and science communication communities. Communicating the Future: Engaging the Public in Basic Science will explore why the public and basic science should be connected and what current communication and engagement efforts are taking place, including the challenges and opportunities in this work. 

Ultimately, they intend to identify how scientists and professionals can work to engage the public with basic research as effectively as possible.

The conference program will be organized around the exploration of the whywhat and how of the relationship between the public and basic science.

Without continued support for health research, many of the most promising young scientists, their ideas and a myriad of potentially life-changing scientific breakthroughs will vanish into oblivion.
