Scope of the workshop
Science is exciting, enlightening, complex, fundamental, precise, logical, and creative, all at the same time. However, for the public to get in touch with it and understand why it encompasses all these concepts, efforts need to be made to bridge science and society. With this aim, communication teams at research infrastructures work with a ra​nge of methods and channels. They make complex information more tangible and disseminate it as broadly as possible so that the public can understand and be engaged. 

This conference aims to be a hands-on forum for communications, public relations and engagement professionals staff to share their ​experiences and expertise. The aim is that  participants return  home with new ideas for their work, by learning how and with which means  other research institutions are communicating the importance of science and of research infrastructures to society.
