Abstract

This article is the first in a series on the communication of mathematics in Europe. In this first instalment Andrea Capozucca visits with Prof. Christopher Budd, OBE. Some of the topics covered in the interview with Budd are the golden rules for an effective communication, the ways to improve skills and nourish passions, past, present and future projects, Bath Taps into Science, the events of the British Science Week, and much more. The result is a snapshot of the present state of the communication of mathematics, seen through the eyes of one of the leading figures in the field of public engagement and outreach. The author also experienced first-hand the methods and tools used in communicating maths in Britain, leading to a reflection on the importance of the communication of science today.
