Started in 2013, the Forum for Science Communication (FFF) is an annual conference aimed at science communicators, researchers, journalists as well as those active or interested in science communication.
The next FFF will take place 28 November 2023, in Stockholm and online. The conference will be held mainly in Swedish with some parts of the program in English. The theme is ”AI and Me – Science Communication of the Future”.
FFF has developed into the largest Nordic conference for those working in science communication. The aim of the conference is to provide participants with inspiration, new knowledge about tools and methods for science communication and the opportunity to network and exchange experiences with others.
The objectives are:
- to strengthen society’s understanding and interest in research and the scientific process,
- to promote dialogue and collaboration between researchers and wider society,
- to ensure that research findings are utilised for the benefit of society.
From 2013-2021, the Forum for Science Communication was run as a part of the International Science Festival in Gothenburg.
The Forum for Science Communication 2023 is organised by the non-profit organisation VA (Public & Science) together with the research councils Forte, the Swedish Research Council and Vinnova, as well as Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the Knowledge Foundation, the Natur & Kultur Foundation, the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation, the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ), and the University Alliance Stockholm Trio.
