New frontiers in science communication: Researchers’ experiences of coming out of the lab

By C. Rocks and K. Bultitude


Researchers are increasingly playing a key role in the public communication of science. This makes understanding researchers’ motivations, and the benefits and barriers they perceive, an important step to ensuring successful direct interactions between scientists and publics. Through the synthesis of the evaluation findings, this paper explores the impacts on the researchers who took part in four public engagement projects in the field of robotics. In general, the impacts have been positive and of a practical, personal and professional nature. However, only a small number of the researchers’ comments indicate a change in attitude to public engagement
