Open Call for Proposals: Future of Science Communication

ALLEA is proud to announce the Open Call for Proposals for the Future of Science Communication conference, to be held on 24-25 June 2021 in Berlin. The event is organised in cooperation with Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organisation for science communication in Germany. 

Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the two-day conference aims to bring together actors from research and practice of science communication. The goal is to provide a platform for stronger networking and exchange of activities and expertise in the field. We are looking for contributions from the following fields of research and practice: 

  • Trust in science 
  • The Covid-19 pandemic as a challenge for science communication 
  • Science communication in a digitized media world; Fake News/Disinformation
  • Science and politics 
  • Crisis communication with case studies (e.g. on climate change, Covid-19 pandemic) 
  • Target groups of science communication 
  • Citizen Science & Open Science 

We explicitly encourage the submission of contributions by researchers as well as practitioners whose research and work focus on science communication and the relationship between science, researchers and the public. Junior researchers should not be discouraged from sharing their insights. We are looking forward to receiving contributions from individuals with diverse backgrounds. 

The contributions for the conference programme can only be submitted using the application form. Please send the completed application to by 28 February 2021.

We are looking forward to curating two days of interesting workshops, panels and discourse, for which we rely on your input and suggestions.  For more information and the proposal submission form, visit Wissenschaft im Dialog’s webpage
