Our Goal

To further understand trust and lack of trust in science and technology and to support ethically earning and sustaining trust in these domains.

Our Mission Statement

We're a network of people dedicated to better understanding why people do or don't trust scientific and technical information. It's a big issue, we know, and so we believe it is important to study the topic in all its complexity and richness. We approach this problem through a transdisciplinary approach, through practitioner experience, and a lot of asking questions and even more listening to a wide range of perspectives. 



To help build a more peaceful, prosperous, resilient, and sustainable future informed by science and evidence, the Nobel Foundation and the U.S. National Academy of Sciences are once again joining forces to present the second Nobel Prize Summit: Truth, Trust and Hope. This global dialogue on disinformation and the erosion of public understanding and trust in science will take place May 24-26, 2023 in Washington, DC in-person and online. For more information, visit the Nobel Prize Summit website.
