We challenge the misrepresentation of science and evidence in public life and intervene – often in partnership with others – to hold those responsible to account.
We call for open and honest reporting of research, and we support researchers who speak out in the face of hostility or intimidation.
We prioritise the socially and scientifically difficult issues – like plant science and energy.
We mobilise the public to ask for evidence, offering insight into how to analyse evidence and ask the right questions.
We encourage researchers and decision makers to talk about evidence, particularly when it is controversial or difficult.
Making Sense Of…
Our Making Sense Of guides focus on socially and scientifically difficult issues where evidence is neglected, politicised or misleading. We pull together a working group to tackle areas of interest and concern and work together to answer the most pressing questions on the subject from the public.Making Sense of Allergies
