Collating science and risk communication expertise and experience at SWC?
Hope all is well and that those folks state-side are having a great Labor day weekend! I won't be able to attend the SETAC World congress this year but was wondering if there were any thoughts from the group about using the conference as an opportunity to engage in the 'people' side of the SCIRIC workflow. We had some nice discussions at the Nantes meeting and I was thinking of ways in which we could start collating information from previous sessions and from the communication work done by SETAC members thus far.
One place to start could be collecting abstracts from the previously held science/risk communication-oriented sessions and generating a brief overview of the types of activities and the audiences engaged already by SETAC members. Then perhaps if SCIRIC has any slides to be shown in the SETAC booth or time in the SETAC corner (not sure how things are set up this year), maybe we could use that to advertise an online survey (or informal Q&A). This could then be used to capture work not presented in previous sessions in order to see where SETAC members could use additional support from SCIRIC.
Anyways, just wanted to send out some ideas as I am thinking about ways to find more about SETAC members' scicomm/riskcomm activities which were spurred by our discussion in Nantes. Also, were there any follow-up thoughts to setting up a SETAC SCIRIC twitter account?
Thanks and all the best,
