Germany’s first public engagement codex launched

Principles for a better dialogue between science and society

Public engagement involves the public and all so-called ‘relevant knowledge actors’ actively and continuously in science.” This is how the first “public engagement principles” begin, which were presented to the public at a Berlin Science Week event at the Museum für Naturkunde (Natural History Museum) on November 4, 2022. When communicating with and to the public, it has long been clear that research needs to involve society. The principles are intended to help establish and professionalize public engagement in Germany, so that cooperation between researchers and the public becomes an integral part of the research process.
