TRANSrisk participated in the "100xCiencia.3 - Bridging Science and Society" conference which took place on 15 November 2018 at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre's premises in Madrid, Spain.
The event was co-organised by the "Spanish National Cancer Research Centre" (CNIO) and the "Severo Ochoa Centres of Excellence" and "María de Maeztu Units of Excellence" programmes (SOMMa) and supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities. The event underscored the importance of scientific education, citizen science and the participation of society in the present and future of science. It brought together scientists, politicians, journalists and representatives of the civil society to enable an open debate about the different aspects of how and why science is important for society. At the events the challenges and opportunities offered by citizen science and science education were discussed over the following three different round tables: (i) The media as channeling agents for science; (ii) Scientists and science policy together for society; (iii) Scientific empowerment of society.
Particularly, researcher Alevgul Sorman from the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) participated in the conference and presented the results of the research on the Spanish stakeholders' perceptions regarding climate change, energy mixes, and the new energy transition law in Spain. Also, a live role-playing survey had been conducted with the audience in order to depict how the survey had been implemented in the spanish case study (see the video below). The research is part of the TRANSrisk case study in Spain, more on which you can find here.
