Do the public wish to be involved in the process of scientific research? If yes – how? These questions were asked in our public survey "Public attitudes to life sciences research in six European countries" and in the German and Swedish Science Barometers. The results from these studies will be presented at the 11th Forum Wissenschaftskommunikation 2018 on 8 October in Bonn.

Join our interactive session to discuss the results of these surveys at 15.00 hrs on 8 October. By using live polling and a dilemma café, the audience will be sampled for their opinions on future challenges of public engagement with science. The results of these discussions will be fed into the design of future co-creation activities within the ORION Open Science project. 

Speakers are:

Dr Luiza Bengtsson, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the Helmholtz Association 
Ricarda Ziegler, Wissenschaft im Dialog 
Gustav Bohlin, Vetenskap & Allmänhet
