Webinar – Trust in Science: Understanding the Trends and Implications for Science Communication

May 20, 2024 475

Recent survey data show declines in trust in science that mirror earlier trends for other institutions, including journalism and government. New research is shedding additional light on those patterns and illuminating some of the mechanisms that underlie the aggregated trends. In this webinar, moderated by Meriette DiChristina of Boston University and presented as part of the National Academies’ Standing Committee on Advancing Science Communication, researchers considered the differences between credibility, confidence, and trust; described new empirical findings; and discussed the implications for how to communicate science in a complex information landscape. The webinar took place on May 30, 2024, and the recording appears below.

Panelists for the event were:

Katherine Ognyanova, Associate professor of communication at Rutgers University

Arthur “Skip” Lupia, Gerald R. Ford Distinguished University Professor at the University of Michigan

Liz Hamel, Vice president and director of public opinion and survey research at the Kaiser Family Foundation
