Research interests

Anne M. Dijkstra, PhD (University of Twente)  studies the changing relationship between science, technology and society from a communication perspective. Her research focuses on the role of the public as well as the role of researchers in this relationship and is related to new and emerging technologies. Key words in her research are public engagement, science communication, responsible research and innovation, co-creation, governance, risk communication and risk governance.

In 2020, the book 'Science Communication. An Introduction' was published by World Scientific Publisher (Singapore/London). Anne Dijkstra was one of the editors and contributed as an author to several chapters. The text book is based on the Dutch book Wetenschapscommunicatie, een kennisbasis (2014). In 2013 Anne was a visiting researcher at Newcastle University and a visitor at the Institute of Advanced Study at Durham University. In 2008 she defended her PhD dissertation with the title ‘Of publics and science. How publics engage with biotechnology and genomics’. Prior to her academic work she worked as a project manager and (science and risk) communication advisor.

Teaching

Since 2014 Anne Dijkstra is coaching and supervising excellent master students in the Research Honours master programme at the University of Twente. In addition she is coordinator and lecturer at the Twente Graduate School. From 2008-2015 she was coordinator and lecturer at the track Science Communication of the master programme Science Education and Communication. She teaches various courses related to the science-society relationship, for example about science communication, science journalism and responsible research and innovation

Projects

Currently, she is involved as a researcher in two EU projects. The goal of the GoNano project (No 768622, 2017-2020, NMBP) is to improve the responsiveness of research and innovation processes to public values and concerns.  Thus, Governing Nanotechnologies through societal engagement. In RRI2SCALE (No 872526, 2020-2023) sustainable regional innovation is explored and fostered. RRI2SCALE stands for Responsible Research and Innovation Ecosystems at Regional Scale for Intelligent Cities, Transport and Energy.

Recently, the NUCLEUS Horizon 2020 project ended (No 664932, 2015-2019). NUCLEUS stands for New Understanding of Communication, Learning and Engagement in Universities and Scientific Institutions. This project aimed at analysing and facilitating the dialogue between science and society via the notions of Responsible Research and Innovation.
