Dear Neil & HIFA colleagues,
Those of you that work in public engagement with science in countries around the world may be interested in attending this free event from the Wellcome Centre anti-infectives research (WCAIR) at the University of Dundee:
Their tag line is: "We live in an ever more complex world. How can scientists and publics listen to and understand one another?"
As they state: "With very different backgrounds from 2 continents, half a world apart, the event is bound to be an insightful adventure into the world of public engagement with research."
