|In April 2011 we successfully produced our first ever event looking at the use of digital and social technologies in science communication in partnership with the Australian Government – Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research hosted at the Brisbane Powerhouse. A year on we are set to launch a new digital science not for profit organisation: Science Rewired
It will explore the impact of social media, crowdsourcing and digital technologies on science communication and citizen science in developing international collaboration on major social and scientific issues of our time.
Focusing on a key theme of “Connect, Collaborate and Communicate for Change” the launch event will bring together science communicators, academics, media professionals and digital visionaries for a one day conference of debate, insight and education.
The organisation is designed for science communicators at a variety of levels including: science practitioners of all specialities from environmental conservation to nanotechnology; science journalists; science educators from primary school to University level; digital innovators; public relations professionals; not-for-profit campaigners; and community groups.
‘Science Rewired’ is an inclusive forum for anyone wanting to find out how science and digital technology can be used to create positive change in the world.
Tickets for Sciencerewired are now available.
