Agriculture can deliver a variety of environmental public goods and ecosystem services.

To address this imbalance, targeted policy instruments are required to ensure that public goods are provided at the level desired by society.

Applied science communication module for the sake of our Science Shops

In a Science Shop, a great amount of success relies on communication, specifically on science communication. Communication impacts the very beginning of the process (how to contact with communities you can collaborate with), and it should be very well led through the research design and during the research as well – unless you can’t effectively co-conduct your research with the various kinds of organizations or civil society groups you work with in a Science Shop. Good science communication underpins the engagement of the society for research, such as the engagement of policymakers. It also increases the impact of the research in the local environment of the civil society group involved in the research. Science communication also develops the mutual learning process of the stakeholders of community-based research.
