This year’s topic was science communication between the conflicting demands of politics, society, and science.

Forum Wissenschaftskommunikation 2011

The event presented new ideas and brought together people who are devoted to the communication of science. It was open to scientists, journalists, representatives of science centers, student labs, universities, research institutions and science festivals, press and public relations officers, educators, teachers as well as the interested public. Approximately 250 participants joint the forum.

In 2011, the forum dealed with science communication between the conflicting demands of politics, society, and science. In plenary lectures, sessions, and interactive offerings, the forum explored the conflicting demands placed on science communication and addresses the questions of how science communication is influenced by different groups and how science communicators deal with this situation. The opening speech was held by science journalist and television host Ranga Yogeshwar.

The 4th Forum on Science Communication was supported by the Klaus Tschira Foundation, the Ernst Schering Foundation, and the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft. The Ernst Schering Foundation was also a member of the program committee.
