BY EUROPEAN ACADEMIES

Becca Shellock and Mark Dickey-Collas on gaining, losing and repairing trust

In this episode, a social scientist from the Australian National University and the chair of the ICES advisory committee discuss strategies for building and maintaining trust at the science-policy interface — and what goes wrong when scientists become a little bit too trusted.
