, Head of Public Engagement at the University of St Andrews will moderate the panel with panellists Erik Hansalek (BMBF, Head of Unit Africa and Middle East), (Head of the Berlin School of Public Engagement and Open Science), (Stellenbosch University, South Africa), (winner of the Falling Walls Lab Johannesburg) and (Director Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin).
Public Engagement is a topic the organisers want to develop further with their South African partners. The Science Forum offers an excellent platform to discuss the topic with German and South African experts and to engage in conversation with an international audience. How can we strengthen and promote Public Engagement and Science Communication across national borders? What are the different requirements and approaches to Public Engagement?
This year, the Science Forum will take place digitally from 1 to 3 December 2021. The BMBF session will take place on 2 December 2021 from 8 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. CET (9 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. South Africa local time) in room 6.
As always, 'Ignite Conversations about Science' is the motto of the Science Forum - the Africa Unit of the BMBF is looking forward to sparking conversations on Public Engagement with you!
