This panel event shifts the spotlight away from specific science controversies, and calls on us to examine the scientific discipline as a whole. How has the relationship between science and the public evolved to date? To what extent is the scientific profession obliged to engage with the public? How can it do so more effectively? What can the layman even contribute to science policy? More fundamentally, who owns science – the experts, the consumers, the media, the powers that be, the traditional lab rat, the hapless lay volunteer of a clinical study? Who knows?

Refreshments will be available after the talk and Q&A session.

Panel:

Dr. James Wilsdon – Director of Science Policy Centre, The Royal Society

Professor Jim Secord – Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge

Ms Anna Lewcock – News Editor of Chemistry World

This session will be chaired by Lord Martin Rees (Master of Trinity College & President of The Royal Society).

This talk is part of the The Triple Helix Lecture Series series.
