Communicating science to nonscientists

23 May 2022

This event has already taken place.


Nonscientists often see science as impenetrable and scientists as unsociable introverts hiding in labs. In turn, researchers wonder how they could possibly explain their work in a clear yet scientifically correct way to people outside their own field.

This lecture, given by Jean-luc Doumont (Principiae), explores the challenges of communicating science to nonscientists (and, to a point, to fellow scientists as well) and proposes strategies that help overcome these challenges.
