Research in the field of neurotechnology raises ethical and societal questions and thus represents a particular challenge for public engagement efforts. How should formats of public outreach be shaped to encourage public reflection on science? How can the one-way nature of communication between the expert and lay people be overcome? This anthology introduces a special concept of public outreach relying on participatory events that create a productive overlap of the fields of science and art. The contributors from various disciplines discuss the relationship of both spheres, present current science/art initiatives, and locate this transdisciplinary approach within the debate on public engagement theories and higher education policy specifications.
Mathilde Bessert-Nettelbeck is a behavioral biologist and has worked in science communication and public relations. Within the cluster of excellence "BrainLinks – BrainTools" at the University of Freiburg, she develops and curates participatory projects and events that operate at the interface of science and art and aim at promoting an ethical and societal reflection on neurotechnology.
