Many publications can be found within the social science domain calling for a change in the communication of scientific expertise in terms of increasing participation and democratization. Still the question that remains is: How do we do it? How must science communication be organized that it does not fall back on the so called deficit model and as far as genetic engineering is concerned does not focus on the knowledge-acceptance-relation. After more than five years of experience the author has gained valuable experiences in organizing such communication processes. Against the backdrop of this some conclusions can be drawn.

New concepts for social participation

Many publications can be found within the social science domain calling for a change in the communication of scientific expertise in terms of increasing participation and democratization. Still the question that remains is: How do we do it? How must science communication be organized that it does not fall back on the so called deficit model and as far as genetic engineering is concerned does not focus on the knowledge-acceptance-relation. After more than five years of experience the author has gained valuable experiences in organizing such communication processes. Against the backdrop of this some conclusions can be drawn.
