In August, I published a new article in the journal Nanoethics. Over the years, I've been working out ideas on how to consider the optimal methods for undertaking science communication work as a route towards public engagement with science.
This article takes on a number of ideas within this literature, mostly with a view to arguing that we need to more effectively mobilise the digital sphere to bring about a greater empowerment of all stakeholders among the science industries. This includes the public, but also a range of other engaged individuals and institutions who may be considered stakeholders of science. In all cases, the aspiration is to enable the accumulation of science capital as a lifelong investment for all people.
The article is available as an open access publication, made possible by Salford's agreement with Springer. You can find it here.
