6 Promoting science promotion: the move from deficit to dialogue
This unit will look at how public engagement in science and technology might be achieved through science promotion. Science promotion and public involvement in policy making can require both formal and informal objectives: some are explicit and some are implicit, some are articulated at the planning stage and some are unexpected. These objectives can entail participation, engagement, knowledge exchange and learning – all of which require a degree of motivation by all parties.
