“We live in a complex society. COVID-19 made us realise just how complex science and society interfaces are with many role players, influencers, messages, messengers, uncertainties, and more,” said Bernard Schiele when he reflected on a recent two-day planning event for the 2023 PCST conference.

For PCST 2023, we are making an explicit commitment to encourage equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in gender, age, ethnicity, other identities and geographical locations, and in terms of ideas and professional and methodological approaches (i.e., research and practice).
