Let's not go there. Tackling tricky issues in science communication. SCI:COM Conference 2016 - - - 7 December 2016, Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin

This the largest science communications conference in Ireland, founded by UCD, and Whipsmart Media, supported by Science Foundation Ireland and partners. Now in its second year, the event is an exciting day of talks, panel discussions, brainstorming and networking. An unmissable event for anyone interested in the communication of science to any audience, SCI:COM welcomes a broad spectrum of delegates: teachers, researchers, event organisers, journalists, facilitators and policy advisors.
