It remains a fact that unless content is summarised in a suitable form it
remains inaccessible.

In the UK a significant part of scientific budgeting is set aside for

 The Committee on the Public Understanding of Science (COPUS) . No one is
expecting all members of the public to understand all the details, that is
naturally unachievable. However it is recognised that the public has a right
to understand what is being funded.
