Science Communication Workshop

Summer School Science Communication

Are you interested in learning more about how to communicate about your research with other audiences than the scientific community? Are you available for 1 week from 8-12 July? Then we have an interesting opportunity for you.

The NWA-routes ‘The quantum/nano-revolution’ and ‘Building blocks of matter and fundaments of space and time’ are offering a summer school from July 8-12, 2019, about science communication. Over the span of one week, you will get theoretical perspectives about science communication, practice skills and apply all of that in the development of a product to share your own research field. Science Communication scientists from Leiden University will guide you through the process, providing you insights and inspiration.

The program will include:

·      Introduction to science communication, inspiration on SC products.

·      Lectures on communication theory, target audiences, how to include outreach in funding proposals, literature and best practices.

·      Presentations by guest speakers about their experiences with different types of science communication.

·      Workshops on writing, presenting and storytelling.

·      Throughout the week, participants will develop their own product which will be presented at the end of the week.

The summer school will take place in The Hague (Monday July 8) and Leiden (Tuesday-Friday 9-12 July). The program will last from 9-17h each day. Coffee/tea and lunch will be provided, as well as a closing reception on Friday.
