How to recognise, combat and out-compete misinformation

The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked media coverage about science in a way never seen before. It also highlighted that accurate, evidence-based reporting is essential when dealing with a rapidly-circulating virus or building public trust on treatments and vaccines. This session looks at how the research community is responding to the huge rise of misinformation, and how we can take lessons from humanities and social sciences to combat it.
