A conversation with Prof. Hans Peter Peters

How often do scientists communicate with journalists? To what extent do they engage with the public directly through social media platforms? What factors shape their tendency to engage in these activities? Join us as we explore scientists' public communication patterns and compare them across different countries. In this episode we talk with Prof. Hans Peter Peters, a social scientist at the Research Center Jülich and Adjunct Professor of Science Journalism at the Free University of Berlin. Prof. Peters is a leading expert on scientists as media sources and public communicators.
