Talking to the media: An introduction to science communication

If you’ve made an important research breakthrough, other people should know about it. Of course your peers are important, but what about the wider world? The terms of your research funding may also require you to disseminate your results publicly. This workshop looks at how journalists work and at how to tell your story succinctly and clearly so that a non-specialist audience will understand you. It also covers press release writing, dealing with controversial issues and devising a media strategy and incorporates several hands-on practice sessions.

The language of presentations will be English.
