A cunning plan to help everyone engage with innovation.


As a science journalist, I speak with researchers, technologists and innovators on a daily basis, and it's my job to enable non-specialists to better understand their work. This isn't always easy. Sometimes the  work they do is complicated and niche - like the subplot of one episode of a soap opera you have never seen, so you don’t know the characters, what has gone before and what this plot line will mean for the future. My cunning plan to get around these difficulties is to bring out the human element and let that be the gateway to more realistic understanding of science, technology and innovation. And, unlike Baldrick’s cunning plans in Blackadder, this one usually works.
