The Congress

ScienceComm has been bringing together science communication actors in Switzerland since 2011.

The national meeting provides a space for an exchange of experiences among the three language and cultural regions. The annual congress is a platform for professional dialogue and focuses on networking, interaction and participation. We aim to provide a platform like-minded people to become acquainted and share their knowledge. In doing so, we hope to promote values such as sustainability, justice, diversity and inclusion.




For this year's ScienceComm, a Call for Participation has been issued with the focus on "from knowledge to dialogue to action" and on "science communications' accessibility and fun factor". The emphasis is on making scientific topics fun and easily  accessible, as well as promoting the relationship between science and activism. To effectively engage a broad audience, particularly newer demographics, science communication should be presented with a touch of simplicity. It's essential to connect with the audience emotionally and pique their curiosity.
