The aim of this webinar is to discuss the topic of “fake news” in science: what it is, how it emerges, circulates and grows, as well as to analyze the role of (social) media in this process. It offers ways of counteracting fake news, conspiracy theories and bogus science, as well as shows how certain standards help us fight these phenomena. The panelists discussed what can be done to help elevate the level of trust towards science and scientists.
This webinar took place on February 18, 2021 as part of “The new media: between science and fiction” series organized by the Fulbright Poland and co-financed by the U.S. Department of State from the Special Congressional Appropriation.
