Workshop Abstract: Science Communication - Why and how should I do it?
Scientists are usually busy conducting experiments, analyzing data, reading, writing, editing … Why should you bother with yet another task – talking about your research to an audience beyond your peers? In this session, we will give you an overview of what science communication is, how it works on different levels as well as why it might be worth your time. The session includes hands-on exercises.
Registration (open until June, 7): Please register here
