Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organisation for science communication in Germany, and ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, are organising the "Future of Science Communication Conference" on 24-25 June 2021 in Berlin. Application call for proposals is open until February 28.

About the conference

The two-day conference aims to bring together actors from research and practice of science communication in order to provide a platform for stronger networking and exchange of activities in the field.

The application deadline for the Open Call for Proposals is February 28, 2021.

Who can apply?

The organisers explicitly encourage the submission of contributions by researchers as well as practitioners whose research and work is focused on science communication and the relationship between science, researchers and the public. Junior researchers should not be discouraged from sharing their insights.

Submit proposals for lightning talks, workshops, or a poster session and help shape the conference through your expertise and experience.

At the conference, leading European researchers, as well as junior researchers from various disciplines (educational research, media and communication research, sociology, psychology, etc.) who investigate the relationship between science and the public, will meet practitioners from science communication, politics, media, and civil society.
