In the No Man’s Land between Knowledge and Communication

From climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic through to the crisis of truth, science communication is facing some significant challenges. How much academic research does good science communication require? What do we need to know about the academic system in order to assess, communicate and categorize scientific knowledge? These are some of the questions being tackled by an international conference entitled “Nowhere(to)land? What Science Studies Contribute to Science Communication.” Held in English, it will be hosted by the Forum Internationale Wissenschaft (FIW) at the University of Bonn from Wednesday, June 14 to Friday, June 16. 

Health information increases whole grain consumption

Whole grain products are healthy, but not particularly popular. However, providing information of their benefits can change that, at least a little bit. This is demonstrated by a recent study conducted by the University of Bonn, involving over 300 people between the ages of 18 and 39. But despite receiving relevant information daily for two weeks, the effect was relatively small. The researchers therefore believe that education alone is unlikely to achieve the recommended consumption levels. The study has now been published in the journal "Appetite."
