Hans Henrik Bruun, an Associate Professor at the Department of Biology and the recipient of this year's Faculty of Science's Dissemination Award, is known for being an active voice in public discourse about Danish nature. He is committed to sharing his professional knowledge about nature and biodiversity, even if it challenges prevailing ideas and interests. Bruun sees it as his research responsibility to contribute to public understanding and democracy by disseminating research-based knowledge. He believes that researchers should take the initiative to engage in public discourse and correct misconceptions in their field. Despite facing personal attacks and criticism, Bruun remains dedicated to his role as a disseminator and finds motivation in recognition and the impact of fact-based arguments on those who are open to listening. He encourages his research colleagues to participate in public debates and not shy away from potential conflicts with lobbyists.
