With the increasing economization as well as the ›governance by numbers‹ and digitalization of science, the academic sector faces tremendous challenges. The public›s need for scientific knowledge and expectations of fact-based policies affect all disciplines; this has been obvious not only since the coronavirus pandemic. In this light, ›science communication‹ and notions of ›public science‹ have become independent and increasingly demanded elements of research and teaching. However, the disciplinary characteristics require differentiated analyses of this new development. The workshop on challenges and opportunities of science communication in the social sciences focused on the findings of (sociological) science research. This article documents the closing discussion.
