In April, we were pleased to welcome (back!) to the Unit Dr Gyula Kasza, a former member of the Marie Curie Training Site, now Head of Division of Public Relations at the Hungarian Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. While here, he and his colleague, Dr Zoltan Lakner (Corvinus University, Budapest) discussed the ways in which their work on public engagement with science could be informed by the work we have conducted in this area, meeting Siân Beynon-Jones to discuss our FP7 project on citizen participation. We also explored how research units might be established in universities in Hungary within the STS field and how they might be structured.
