The Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS) is the world's most diverse academic science communication centre.

The Centre’s mission is to encourage a confident democratic ownership of modern science nationally and internationally by increasing science awareness in the community, fostering public dialogue about science, and improving the communication skills of scientists.
