Talking life sciences to both sexes, Brussels

January 17, 2006

Brussels, 16 Jan 2006

A free workshop to investigate the different ways that can be employed to communicate science to men and women will be held in Brussels on 9 February.

The event aims to see how men and women interpret scientific information and perceive risk, identifying any gender differences that might exist. Activities will include investigations into whether the brains of men and women are different and whether girls and boys should be taught differently at school.

The event will present the latest data on the subject, while invited experts will talk about the latest research. The day will be split into two parts: the first to present the latest data and research, and the second to examine different ways of applying this knowledge to address the differences between men and women.
