Meet the ORION team and get a glimpse of our activities at the online Future of Science Communication conference on 25 June. The conference brings together European actors from research and practice of science communication and is co-organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organization for science communication in Germany, and ALLEA, the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities.
The ORION team will participate in a session on "Engaging the Public through Open Science - Putting theory into practice" at the Public Communication of Science and Technology, PCST virtual conference on 27 May at 11:00-12:15 CET. During the session you will get a glimpse of some of the ORION public engagement and co-creation projects, methods and activities.
The ORION team will run a session on "How can art and gaming spur public engagement in Science" at the Swedish HSS 2021 conference on 6 May at 13:20 CET. The theme for this year's conference is "Collaboration across borders". During the session we will showcase the Artist in residency project, the art work AEON - Trajectories of CRISPR and longevity" as well as the VACCINE gaming project.
The RRING project is nearing completion. The RRING online summit on 19-20 April will bring together the projects leading proponents and participants over two days to highlight, discuss and expand upon the learning and insights gained from the communities activities.
The findings of the ORION public dialogue on genome editing in life sciences research were presented at an event on 11th March 2021. The findings bring together four public dialogue events held in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden and Czech Republic during 2019-2020. The dialogues sought to explore public attitudes to fundamental life sciences research when revolutionary genome editing technologies are used in order to understand when and how to engage audiences with emerging technologies. The public dialogue also sought to understand how public engagement strategies might differ between countries.
The ORION Training team will present the experiences gained from communicating Open Science through the ORION podcast in the session "Tell me more - exploring Open Science through podcasting" at the Open Science Conference at 12.15-13.45 (CET) on 17 February 2021. The conference provides a forum for all stakeholders to discuss the latest and future developments in Open Science. The event is arranged by the Leibniz Research Alliance Open Science and this year’s conference will especially focus on the effects and impact of (global) crises and associated societal challenges, such as the Corona pandemic and the climate change.
Join the ORION session on "Public Dialogues as a tool for public engagement" on 1 December during the Engage Festival 2020. The online Engage Festival brings together all of those keen to support the role of public engagement in reimagining our world and this year's theme is Engagement, innovation and change.
Join us to discuss Open Science and RRI at ESOF in Trieste. The ORION partners will be involved in three sessions during ESOF 2020 - EuroScience Open Forum on 2-6 September. The theme for ESOF 2020 is: “Freedom for science, science for freedom". Due to Covid-19, this year's ESOF is also open for online participation.
The Corona pandemic shows how crucial it is that scientists and other parts of the society work together. In order to achieve sustainable solutions to small and large societal challenges, we need to jointly create new knowledge. But how does that work in practice?
What do the public think about genome editing? That’s what we hope to find out through our public dialogue on genome editing which takes place in Stockholm on 8 February. The aim with the public dialogue is to discuss the risks and opportunities of disruptive technologies and identify any concerns the public might have.
