Conference Report from the EU Cities and Science Communication Conference – science policy recommendations and how they can be achieved

Here is the conference report from the EU CASC conference which took place at ThinkTank in Birmingham, UK, on 26-28 January 2011. The partners and delegates agreed on three policy recommendations which will increase public interest and engagement with science across the European Union. These policy recommendations are:

  • strengthen science citizenship
  • celebrate science and scientists
  • promote evidence-based research

The conference report puts forward the delegates’ suggestions for how these recommendations can be put in place – it also provides context for the recommendations and a series of case studies which illustrate how the findings from the CASC project informed these ideas.

You can download a PDF of the conference report here. The full CASC project report will be published in due course.

For more information on the policy recommendations please see these posts reporting on the discussions which took place at the conference.
