MORU’s Bioethics and Engagement Department combines traditional ways to reach the public – public meetings, community dialogues and media – with innovative methods such as Pint of Science, science theatres, science cafés and activities for school children.
MORU’s aim is to improve public understanding of science and enable the patient and public to be an active collaborator in health systems and health research processes.
Throughout SE Asia, we work to engage target audiences in health, science and the issues arising from work done by MORU researchers on malaria and other tropical medicine diseases in their communities.
Organised by MORU, Thailand and SE Asia’s first Pint of Science Festival 15-17 May at FabCafé Bangkok drew enthusiastic crowds each night.
Open to all, Pint of Science Thailand gave the public and participating scientists a chance to meet and interact with each other. Participating scientists presented on a variety of topics in a lively, informative format that allowed the public to directly engage with scientists on a variety of topics in a lively, informative manner in both English and Thai.
In this video, organisers, scientists and audience members discuss what make Pint of Science Thailand so special.
