ScienceCommm’21 is going to take place on 15th & 16th September 2021 at the University of Fribourg.


The Call for Participation is closed.

During ScienceComm’21, emphasis is put on connecting, interacting and participating. We want to get to know each other and to learn from each other.

The 10th edition of ScienceComm takes 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 will take place on Wednesday 15th & Thursday 16th September 2021 at the University of Fribourg. Also, we invite the broad public as well as conference participants to join us for a public event.

Save the date! We publish news and information on a regular basis on our website ScienceComm and on Twitter (#ScienceComm21).
