Opening up Research: a quiet revolution
Paul Manners talk will explore, for instance, attempts to change the culture of research – to value public engagement not just publication for one’s academic peers; new approaches to assessing the social impact of research; attempts to build ethical and social considerations in to the setting of research agendas; and exciting new models of career development for researchers.

Paul Manners, Director National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement

Science and the Media – the view from the front line
The main remit of the Science Media Centre is to help restore public trust in science by persuading more scientists to engage more effectively with the big controversial science stories that hit the headlines, and over the last 10 years the SMC has earned huge praise and respect from those who use its services.

Science in the UK Parliament

Most parliamentarians do not have a scientific or technological background but science and technology issues are increasingly integral to public policy. By writing briefings, organising events and assisting Select Committees, the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology have supported parliamentarians in their decision-making since 1989.

What no cat videos? A science communication guide to working on You Tube
As You Tube turns 10 this year, it’s perhaps a good opportunity to take a look at how the science communication community has (or has not) embraced online video as a means of communicating science. With over 300 hours of video uploaded every minute, it’s been hailed as a great example of democratisation. It’s also been derided for its triviality. So, what makes a good science video? And, aside from numbers of views, how would you know? What are the myths and realities?
