Pick up a PCST keyword (A Concise PCST Dictionary) As a field of research and practice, PCST is often at risk of ‘reinventing  the  wheel’. After several decades of experiences and studies, PCST seems mature to reflect on its ‘state of the art’, starting from those main keywords that characterise both specialist, policy and public debate on science communication: e.g. “dialogue”, “science culture”, “engagement”. This interactive session invites participants to discuss and explore a concise PCST dictionary. Each participant will pick up a card with a keyword and propose his/her own definition. Session organisers will elaborate and debate will follow.  More keywords could also be proposed. After the session, the Dictionary will be made available on the conference website in an open format for all participants to comment. The final document will be made available on the conference website.
