The journey of the POIESIS Public Deliberative Workshops continues!

A great thank you to our facilitator Philipp Schrögel, an expert in science communication and various
creative forms of it, who provided a stimulating input on trust, trust in science and how this relates

their personal experiences and perspectives on science communication in their field.

Another big thank you to Imke Hedder and Lisa Mertin - who along with Anne-Sophie Behm-Bahtat ensured smooth and interesting discussions in the four small groups.
