PCST 2023

11-14 April 2023, Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The 17th international conference of the Public Communication of Science and Technology network took place from 11–14 April 2023 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The PCST Network hosted a series of online conference sessions from 3 – 5 April 2023 prior to PCST2023 taking place in Rotterdam.

The Conference started on 11 April 2023 with a full day of pre-conference workshops. The main conference ran over three full days (12 – 14 April 2023), and featured an exciting line-up of plenary speakers, themed lunch sessions and a packed programme of visual and oral presentations, mini workshops, performances and demonstrations.

The main theme of PCST 2023 was ‘Creating Common Ground’. This theme signifies the role and value of science communication as boundary work that connects scientists, engineers, policymakers, business leaders and citizens. It also points to the role of science communication to enable collaboration and co-creation of knowledge, but also dialogue, debate and critique about how science is applied in society.
