Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (CoE) Scientific communication. Rapporteur Mr Birraux (see Doc. 9300)
The report focuses on the role played by scientists and science journalists in passing on scientific information to the general public at a time when science is advancing extremely rapidly. For the general public to develop informed opinions on scientific subjects and exercise influence from a position of knowledge over the policy-making process, scientific communication must be improved. Practical measures could be taken by political decision-makers to enable scientists and science journalists to fulfil better their role of accurately conveying scientific information.
