“……..The science-society relationship is recognised as no longer being one in which the needs of the public are dictated by those in authority. But what is it to become? How can those in government, science and the private sector facilitate the science-society relationship more effectively? How can the public in all its diversity become more engaged in the production of science and its role in society?

“…….How do aspects of social identity, like gender, ethnicity and stage in life, influence the way people see the world – and what does it mean for their relations with science and technology? Does science and technology comprise objective facts or is its creation and reception shaped by cultural values and assumptions
