Science communication

Scientific work involves not only research and gaining knowledge, but also making research and its results visible, presenting them in an understandable way and actively communicating them to the public. This involves communicating knowledge and scientific work with its theories, methods, content, effects and concrete benefits. This is done within the scientific institutions, but also and especially in the direction of a non-specialist audience. The challenge here is to present complex scientific content in such a way that it is generally understandable and remains factually correct. Public lectures, such as those in the Science Show, are one way of communicating science. Other formats include documentaries, museums, explanatory videos and radio reports.
