Concurrent Session 2A NSW Chief Scientist and Engineer: a closer look at science communication and outcomes in NSW

Hear your state Chief Scientist explore their region’s science & public policy, and how they interact with other states and the Commonwealth agencies. The Chief Scientist will discuss their views of key science issues in their region and how science communication plays a role or falls short in affecting public and political support for action. Find out how and who they work with to achieve outcomes. They may address positive interactions in their region and might also discuss areas where initial work was less effective and the lessons learned.
