Support Systems for Scientists' Communication and Engagement Workshop III: Academic Institutions - Landscape Overview of University Systems and People Supporting Scientists in their Public Engagement Efforts
Scientists (and engineers) wishing to conduct public engagement do so in the context of established disciplinary norms and complex institutional systems that may support or limit their success. This report seeks to convey the known complexity, unique challenges, and opportunities for universities to better support for scientists in their public engagement work. The report is intended to drive discussion towards deeper exploration and development of actionable next steps.
This is a report from Workshop III: Academic Institutions, part of the Support Systems for Scientists' Communication and Engagement workshop series, held March 27-28, 2018 at UC San Diego.
