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.

Through research led education our students become skilled communicators who can engage people with the science, technology, or medical information that is most relevant to them.

Our research investigates the ways science is being communicated in the public arena, new ways to excite the public imagination about science and methods to encourage informed decisions about scientific issues that concern us in the 21st century.
