Strengthening Networks and Evidence-Based Practices for Science Communication in Europe

In light of COVID-19 and other global challenges such as climate change, it has become apparent that improved science communication is essential to more effectively transfer scientific evidence to citizens and policymakers, and, vice versa, to include the public in meaningful dialogues on science and policies.

This paper presents the policy recommendations that were developed as a result of the Future of Science Communication Conference 2.0 (FSCC 2.0), organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog and ALLEA, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The policy recommendations are organised into four sections that reflect the discussions in the interactive workshops of the conference: Communicating Global Challenges, Fake News & Disinformation, Evidence-based Practice of Science Communication, and Networks and Institutional Structures.
