What role for two-way communication and community engagement in the process of science?
Wednesday 21 November - 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Graduate House, University of Melbourne

As engagement and communication practitioners we regularly connect the public with science. But can this connection go beyond the transmission of information? Can we facilitate engagement to actually improve the way science is carried out? Two-way engagement has been the buzz phrase over the last decade, but how can this process be genuine and meaningful?
This panel debate will explore why and how engagement practitioners might implement deliberative engagement into their practice. Bringing together scientists and researchers from biomedicine, public health and policy, we will hear their views and their experiences. Come along to share your thoughts and decide whether communication and engagement can actually add value to science.
