In the next three years, the Creativity for Scientific Change project will bring together a diverse group of scientists, artists, and members of the public to co-create a new model for public engagement. Through a three-stage, iterative-inductive case study methodology, the project will investigate the inner workings of scientific laboratory practices to uncover the origins and evolution of ethical concerns. By examining where and how these concerns arise, how they grow and persist, or ultimately fade away, the project aims to understand the lifecycle of ethics in the lab. Next, working with artists, the project will facilitate inclusive and multidisciplinary conversations between scientists and the public to explore the complex and often controversial implications of scientific and technological advancements on society. By bringing these conversations into public debate, the project aims to democratise science by incorporating public input into scientific decision-making.
