2017 workshop at CPAS

CPAS staff and students conduct research into diverse topics pertinent to science communication theory and practice. We are committed to publishing our research results in a range of scholarly and public venues, to reach audiences who can best benefit from them.

We supervise many postgraduate and undergraduate research projects. As a young discipline there is ample scope in science communication for innovative and explorative research projects, so students are encouraged to develop proposals responding to issues and questions they are passionate about.
