This panel will reflect today’s challenges and opportunities for Public Engagement. What does it mean to be a good conductor working with an increasing variety of players? How can we make the “sounds of science” being heard in a cacophony of different noises? Should we strive for harmony? Or seek and enjoy dissonances as those musical elements who make a piece interesting? How do we compose good science communication? And who are our co-players?
