Future of Science Communication Conference
Wissenschaft im Dialog/ALLEA
The Future of Science Communication Conference brings together European actors
from research and practice of science communication. The conference will take place
online on 24 and 25 June 2021.
It is co-organised by Wissenschaft im Dialog, the organization for science communication in Germany,

AGEO Project – Explaining natural hazards and the role of citizen observatories through storytelling
Ariadna Ortega Rodríguez, Rui Carrilho Gomes, Vitor Correia, Cláudia Pinto, Balazs Bodó, Adrienn Cseko.
Experiences gained during the implementation of the Citizens’ Observatory pilots will be used to formulate recommendations for the creation of future observatories in response to the widest range of hazards (both natural and human-induced) faced in the Atlantic region. Engaging citizens in Citizens Observatories requires the development of outreach strategies seeking to understand expectations and develop attitudes, behaviours and competencies relevant for the aims and activities of the observatories.
The AGEO Consortium identified and targeted relevant stakeholders using Mendelow’s (1991) power-interest matrix, and developed perceptual maps of stakeholders, adapted for each of the five Citizens’ Observatory pilots. This approach was the basis for the development of tailored value propositions formulated to raise awareness on geohazards and mobilize citizens participation.
AGEO is also using storytelling to inspire the general public to action and emotionally implicate non-specialised audiences. This approach is being used to educate children at school age and to reach their parents (in the pilot regions).

Content Curation for Scientific Videos - Concept and activities within the TIB AV-Portal
The aim of this poster is to give a brief summary and description of the quite new concept and activities of content curation with and in the TIB AV-Portal (https://av.tib.eu). TIB – Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology offers with the TIB AV-Portal since 2014 a non-commercial portal for scientific videos, which can be seen as an attractive addition or an alternative to publishing with YouTube. The advantages of the AV-Portal are to provide the scientific community and interested public an open platform to consume, publish and share scientific videos that are legally compliant, long-term preserved, citable and enriched with other innovative features and services such as automatic video analysis and indexing.
Tell me more: Open Science for the masses
Luiza Bengtsson & Zoe Ingram
The ORION Open Science podcast, produced by the ORION Open Science EU-funded project at the Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine has been talking about all things Open Science for over two years. We cover various aspects of the scientific system through the Open Science lens to educate, raise awareness and to advocate for change. Using the ORION Open Science podcast as a case study, we discuss the advantages of the podcast as a communication medium. These include the benefit of getting differing viewpoints that may not usually get to have a voice in the Open Science movement, for example controversial citizen scientists or Open Science practitioners from outside of Europe. We will also discuss the benefits and the limits of the medium for reaching audiences outside of a certain “bubble” and present our first experiences with taking the Open Science discussion into the clubhouse.

Diving for Denticles, a historical ecology
Ian Cooke Tapia & Erin Dillon
This is a collaboration with Erin Dillon of the University of California, Santa Barbara, to transform her most recent research paper into a visually-arresting poster. Dillon’s research involves the collection of shark dermal denticles from mid-Holocene and modern reef sediments in Bocas del Toro, Panama, to reconstruct a shark baseline before human impact and quantify how much the modern shark community in the region had shifted from this historical reference point.
Showing this data as an illustration was a challenge of complexity versus readability. The poster becomes a single-image narrative that provides more clues the more in-depth understanding of the subject you have. For example, the use of green towards the Present scale of the timeline to suggest the current state of regional decay of coral reefs, versus their historical health.
Bridging Science and Media in building science based society on the example of Estonia
Quantum Mechanics principles explained by means of Card Magic and other magic-related tools
Sílvia Simon(1), Miquel Duran(1) and Fernando Blasco(2)
Our purpose is not only that people understand Quantum Mechanics (no one could, actually!), but to have a glimpse at its basics.
Quantum Mechanics appears in everyday talk in mass media and social networks - however, neither adults nor young students have an adequate perception or understanding. Awareness of its importance in the 21st Century would be enough!
Understanding (actually some uncertain knowledge) would be great.
