Democratised scientific futures: community visions guiding science
Scientific bodies strive to create a culture of public engagement with the ideas of researchers. But while the cultural presence of science is growing daily, the opportunities for the public to influence research are sparse, and often dictated by long-term funding cycles. In this talk I will present a vision of scientific research that is underpinned by a diverse understanding of futures it could lead to, and which is informed by the visions and values of lay communities.
If science engagement is to inspire the public while simultaneously contributing fresh thinking in technical fields, new approaches will be required. I will discuss futures methods that can underpin these approaches and provide examples of projects seeking to democratise scientific research questions from the bottom up.
