ScienceCommm’21 took place on 15th & 16th September 2021 at the University of Fribourg.

During ScienceComm’21, emphasis was put on connecting, interacting and participating.

The 10th edition of ScienceComm took place under the motto « Science Communication in a Period of Crisis ». In times like these, it is especially important for civil society to have access to science.

Never before as in this crisis of Covid-19, science has been exposed to this amount of public interest. We want to reflect on past and current challenges of the pandemic for science and science communication. What can we learn from it? How can the lessons we have learned be transferred to other topics, e.g. environment, economy and political crisis? Within this framework, we want to explore the topics of  «Health Communication», «Credibility of Science and Science Communication» and «Data Literacy». The three topics are independently and at their intersections a rich source of questions and challenges for science communication.

ScienceComm’21 took place on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th September 2021 at the University of Fribourg. Also, we invited the broad public as well as conference participants to join us for a public event.

News and information were published on a regular basis on our website ScienceComm and on Twitter (#ScienceComm21).
