What is SciPEP?
A Novel Collaboration
The Kavli Foundation and the Department of Energy, who both support basic science, are working in partnership to deepen our understanding of effective public engagement around basic research, exploring how we can improve this practice, and providing tools for scientists and practitioners.
Engaging publics in basic science
Our understanding of how publics engage with the process, people, and products of science has grown. As we survey advances in science engagement, we see a gap – basic research is rarely the focus. We seek to advance our knowledge about basic science engagement and empower those who do this work.
Resources for scientists and professionals
SciPEP will curate and create a rich set of resources to help scientists and professionals who engage publics in basic research.
