Science is more than art for art’s sake. The knowledge of researchers only acquires meaning when it is received accordingly in society. Are researchers and scientists today sufficiently heard in politics, business and civil society? Alan Leshner shares his extensive knowledge on the complex relationship between science and society. He provides insights into the future of science communication.
