In 2015 the first workshop on Public Awareness of Research Infrastructures was held. Given its success and very positive feedback from the participants, the second edition of PARI will be organized. PARI2015 was the 10-th of a series of events organized by the ERF-AISBL, the European Association of National Research Facilities.
The EIROforum joined in for the organization of PARI2017.

Science is exciting, enlightening, complex, fundamental, precise, logical, and creative, all at the same time. However, for the public to get in touch with it and understand why it encompasses all these concepts, efforts need to be made to bridge science and society. With this aim, communication teams at research infrastructures work with a range of methods and channels. They make complex information more tangible and disseminate it as broadly as possible so that the public can understand and be engaged.

This conference aims to be a hands-on forum for communication officers and public relations staff to share their experiences and expertise. The aim is that  participants return  home with new ideas for their work, by learning how and with which means  other research institutions are communicating the importance of science and of research infrastructures to society.
Venue: European Southern Observatory, Karl-Schwarzschild-Str. 2, 85748 Garching, Germany
Date: 29-30 May 2017
