A crucial problem in the transfer of scientific knowledge into policy is the engagement of scientists with policy-making processes. More often than not, scientists are lost in the policy maze. This is a stumbling block in evidence-based policy and more generally knowledge utilization. The problem is well-known: if science is about seeking the truth, democratic politics is about seeking consensus. Existing efforts to improve science policy engagement and communication activities cover special segments of communication, by either educating civil servants, teaming up politicians with scientists, teaching statistics to journalists or co-training press officers and scientists on communication. Yet the poor results of policy science communication suggest that there are limitations in explaining science to politicians and bureaucracies. What shall we do, explain policy processes to scientists? And what would that possibly mean? Come and share with us a set of provocative propositions, and ….see where we may end up!

Discussion leaders: Claudio Radaelli (University College London), Peter Biegelbauer (AIT), Thomas König (IHS)
