Audrie van Veen Connecting science

Bridging the gap between science & society


We all use science and technology in our everyday lives. Despite that, there is still a big gap between science and society.  That is a pity, because this gap causes incomprehension and sometimes leads to fear for science and technology. We could reach a point whre nobody knows how a cell phone really works or whre people consider the way medicine cures a disease as something magical. A small problem with these largely unknown processes could therefore cause unreasonable fear and aversion.

I specialise in the public understanding of science. With my work I help bridging the gap by using clear communication for a variety of media. I can support you making your scientific knowledge understandable for every audience you choose. Because I think the world of science is very interesting and everybody should know much more about it!


The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds the most discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny..." Isaac Asimov
