Abstract

Live public science events are increasingly being acknowledged as distinct formats within the spectrum of science communication activity. There is, however, little overall tracking of or advocacy for such activity. External supporters of events, including funders and administrators, need key facts that build into a coherent narrative explaining the role that live events play in the public engagement ecosystem. An aim of Science Live is to gather and amplify voices from the UK and US to enhance conditions for a flourishing professional live public science events sector.
