In 2019 COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) introduced the pilot Cross-Cutting Activity (CCA) on Science Communication.
This CCA will use COST networking instruments to achieve several deliverables in the context of the following specific objectives:
- Create learning tools to enhance the value and impact of public engagement with science;
- Explore ways of achieving high-quality, evidence-based, interdisciplinary science communication, targeting diverse audiences;
- Address the gap between the scientific community, policy makers, journalists and citizens/stakeholders;
- Develop high-quality training in science communication.
