The scientific community. With the Covid-19 pandemic, the general public has heard this expression over and over again. A pledge of credibility and seriousness to justify such and such a public decision on the one hand, and acceptance on the other. But – because there is a “but” – this same scientific community is not immune to the generalized distrust that affects all institutions.
How can we strengthen ties and renew the dialogue between science and society? How can scientists talk to the general public and above all, how can they be understood? Are there new ways to transfer knowledge? This is the topic of the first episode of the podcast series “La fabrique du savoir”, produced in partnership with‘Espace Mendès France in Poitiers.’
