Science Communication, Public Engagement, Pathways to Impact – these are all phrases that are gradually becoming part of the academic vernacular. But to what extent are we actually communicating rather than box ticking? Who is actually benefiting from this engagement, and the researchers even benefiting? In this talk, Dr Sam Illingworth discusses how science communication can be beneficial to both scientist and society, and speaks about his recent research in trying to establish genuine two-way dialogue between experts and non-experts.

We were also fortunate enough to have Sam feature on our podcast series. Tune in to hear Sam read two of his wonderful poems!
