151-9020-00LSummer School: Science and Policy - How to Bridge the Gap?
Number of participants limited to 30.

Registering for course units: Students will be able to send an application to participate to the summer school from 15.03 until 01.05 at this link Link. In the application procedure students will be asked to provide information on their studies (degree pursued, area of study, CV) and a brief letter of motivation. Afterwards, applicants will be contacted by email to inform them whether they have been accepted or not to take part to the school, details will then be provided on how to complete the registration procedure. Further details on the course preselection for registration, the course times and locations will be announced in mid March on the website ( In case of questions students can send an email to the organizers at the following address: Link.
1 KP2SA. Manera
KurzbeschreibungScientific discoveries play an essential role in shaping the future of society, but there is still a significant gap between science and policymaking. The main outcome of the summer school will be that students from diverse backgrounds learn how to break barriers between scientists, policymakers and the general public.
LernzielThrough a five-day program, participants will learn: 1. Why is Open Science (OS), a prerequisite for scientists approaching policymakers and the general public? 2. How do scientists whose research tackles topics of public interest consider policymaking, identify the challenges, and how do they overcome them? 3. How do different stakeholders, such as scientific advisors, journalists and policymakers working for (non)-governmental associations, experience science impacting public decisions? 4. Which formats to communicate science to non-scientific audiences are available, and how can everyone effectively communicate scientific findings to relevant parties? 5. How do public engagement and regulatory frameworks empower scientific findings?
InhaltIntroduction to open science, science for policies (examples from researchers), regulatory framework to empower scientific research, sicence and communication to the general public, public engagement in science and steps towards more open science and communication.
