Only three more weeks to go until our online course "Science Communication for Societal Impact" on October 4th - 7th 2022!
In order to address pressing issues such as the pandemic, climate change, poverty and more, it is crucial for science and society to close ranks, build trust, learn from each other and work together in order to tackle these societal challenges, and consider questions such as: What are strategies and practices that can help ensure that communications and engagement processes do not perpetuate inequities, that best-practices are followed, that trusting relationships are built and existing ones strengthened? How can we best monitor these communication endeavours, evaluate the success of their impact, and use this data to inform our next steps going forward to better optimise the impact of science through engagement?

For 4 half-days, our interactive online course will bring together professionals and stakeholders such as research administrators and managers, evaluators, science funders and policymakers within the impact and science communication field to support researchers in making their research more accessible through interactive training with the experts. 

For more information and topics which will be discussed please check out our WEBSITE

We look forward to welcoming you to this course in October!
