ResBios Open Dialogues Science communication with a Gender Perspective: what does this really mean? A closer look into biosciences Mentoring, role models, networking, gender-inclusive programmes, are all measures that have been put in practice to foster and support the presence, inclusion and career development of women in science and technology. For the last 20 years, we have been moving and achieving milestones regarding women in science, gender equality, gender biases, and lately, gendered innovation. But, what do we communicate when we communicate science? How do we do it and where? Whom are we addressing? Isn't the system the reason and consequence of inequities? How do we communicate this and moreover, what can science communication do to tackle these deficiencies and encourage inclusion for the greater good? In a social endeavour as science, considered as based on merits, competences and creativity, it's imperative to reflect, talk and take action in order to tackle the equality distortions and injustice. The way we communicate science plays a key role in this. online more details...

Open lecture on Responsible Research and Innovation held by René von Schomberg Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) reflects an innovation paradigm that acknowledges that market innovations do not automatically deliver on socially desirable objectives, and requires a broad governance of knowledge coalitions of governmental bodies as well as industrial and societal actors to address market deficits. Responsible Innovation should be understood as a new paradigm for innovation which requires institutional changes in the research and innovation system and the public governance of the economy. It also requires the institutionalisation of an ethics of co-responsibility as well as the introduction of new standards and certification processes for products. Dr. Dr. phil. von Schomberg will introduce Responsible Innovation against the background of 6 deficits of the (global) research and innovation system. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. online, online more details...

Trust in science in turbulent times | EFC Research Forum Conference 2021 The Research Forum Conference 2020 will focus on the public’s participation in science and the public’s trust in science. Citizens need to understand the major questions of science and technology in the contemporary world, because it is in the present that decisions are made, for shaping impact in the future. Solidarity, between present and future, is therefore critically dependent on the full exercise of citizenship, and ensuring that science is trusted. Therefore, we have to go beyond the deficit model and engage in meaningful dialogue, not a monologue from science to society to ensure solidarity. Lisbon, Portugal more details...
