Public Engagement with Science Online (PESO) was an interdisciplinary, international research workshop exploring interactions between sciences, publics and social media. It took place at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology from June 25th to June 28th, 2017.

This research workshop was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Israel Science Foundation (ISF), the president of the Technion, the Municipality of Haifa, the Israeli Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ruth and Allen Ziegler Center for Learning Sciences at the Faculty of Education in Science and Technology of the Technion, the Moshe Yanai Fund for the Fostering of International Scientific Relations (Exact Sciences and Technology), and the I‑CORE program of the ISF and the Planning and Budgeting Committee of the Council for Higher Education of Israel (Grant 1716/12).
