On 24th July 2016, TSSG participated in the European Commission’s Science Communication Event at the Town hall, Manchester (U.K.), part of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF). The EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) is a biennial, pan-European, general science conference dedicated to scientific research and innovation. Each conference aims to deliver stimulating content and lively debate around the latest advancements and discoveries in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.
ESOF brings together over 4,500 leading thinkers, innovators, policy makers, journalists and educators from more than 90 countries, to discuss current and future breakthroughs in contemporary science.
The main focus was to highlights the benefits of science communication and better understanding the interests of different communication multipliers such as for example the European Commission, journalists, and big organisations promoting science to the general public. During the event, invited experts explained their views on science communication and particularly why they believe communication is beneficial for researchers, the do’s and don’ts in communication and how to work together.
Representing TSSG, Nakul Wali participated in the event to engage with the Science community, researchers, H2020 project coordinators and other project representatives. The event demonstrated European Commission’s perspectives followed by the perspectives of specialised media, general media, social media and science museums in a very interesting panel discussion. Among the various dignities were Science Editor and journalist from the BBC and Deutsche Welle, scientist, biologist and other experts from the science community. Among the demonstrated EU-funded research projects like LYNCEUS, LYNCEUS2MARKET, SIRG; TSSG highlighted Molecular Communication project – CIRCLE, integrating islands of heterogeneous research activities in a common research framework, facilitating the creation of an EU-wide Molecular Communications (CIRCLE) network and provide a support infrastructure for coordination of research across Europe.
