Science Engagement Research

6th February 2014


To better understand how public engagement in science policy differs between different countries.




Public involvement in how science and technologies are developed and regulated differs markedly between different countries. There is now a wide range of approaches to supporting dialogue on science and technology issues which impact government policy. We created a report which examined the practice of national-level two-way dialogue on science and technology in eight countries including the UK, and compared these countries across certain
key features in public dialogue and engagement. Based on the comparative analysis, we identified some key recommendations for improving public dialogue in policy-making involving science and technology in the UK.
