Have your say in the development of Trinity’s Science & Society Research Centre!

The Science & Society Research Group at Trinity College Dublin is hosting a town hall meeting to discuss ongoing plans to establish a Science & Society Research Centre. This centre will bring together researchers working across Ireland in areas such as science communication, public engagement, climate education, art-science, higher education science, informal science learning, research-practice partnerships, and citizen science. If you are interested in any of these areas we would be delighted to find ways to work together.

The meeting will share insights from a European Commission-funded project called GlobalSCAPE that was led by the Science & Society Research Group and involved taking stock of science communication around the world. Together with the coordinators of seven other pan-European projects funded under the same topic, the group has been awarded a further 4-year Horizon Europe grant to establish a "European Centre for Science Communication". As part of that project, the group will be tasked with establishing a national centre to connect with the larger European hub. During the meeting we will present our initial plans for the new centre and provide opportunities for you to share your views and opinions on what you would like to see the centre achieve. 

If you are unable to join this event, there will also be a lunchtime webinar the next day, Thursday 23rd February at 1pm (see here). If you cannot attend either event, but you would like to hear more about the developments of the centre, please email scienceandsociety@tcd.ie.
