The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) kindly invite you to the International Virtual Panel Discussion “Science Communication in Times of COVID-19 under the Spotlight”[verlinken zu Event-Website].

The Panel will explore how science communication can be effective in times of COVID-19 and beyond the pandemic. Science communication is essential to support critical decisions and policies with evidence-based data and to inform citizens especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. By taking into account German and South African experiences in science-based advice by translating complex topics into an understandable language, the Panel will analyse how science communication deals with mistrust, fake news, and conspiracy theories and they will discuss chances, limits, and trends of science communication. 

The discussion will be held in English. Join the event via Zoom. You are welcome to ask questions in the Q&A feature.
