TITLE: How to increase the impact on your research with social media: the case study of the E-STaR project
SPEAKER: PhD Anna Eriksson, Centro Ricerca e Innovazione, Fondazione Edmund Mach
ABSTRACT: The project E-STaR aims to bring science closer to society by engaging citizens actively through a citizen science approach, educate young people in actions to safeguard our environment and make them aware citizens and consumers. Through the experiences obtained from the first year of E-STAR I will present the latest trends in the field of social media and how to produce good web content by storytelling of science.
TITLE: The history of science in public: from practice to theory and back
SPEAKER: PhD Ilaria Ampollini, Department Sociology and Social Research, University of Trento
ABSTRACT: Science communication is often addressed as a mere matter of practice; moreover, it is usually perceveid as a recent-day need, linked to the ethical, social or even philosophical implication of contemporary science. On the contrary, science communication has a long history, which dates back to the birth of modern science (XVIIth century). Besides, far from simply being a practice, science communication has been the object of a wide spectrum of theorethical reflections during the last decades. By looking at the history of this practice and at the scientific literature on it -which suggest us what does work and what does not in the act (or acts) of communicating different sciences to different publics-, we will then go back to the practice itself. The ultimate goal will be to be able to design future projects and plan new actions with a re-newed set of knowledge and a sharper awareness.
