Science and Communication Strategy Workshop
When: March 10 and 17, 2021
Scientists and communications experts share practical advice to help scientists better communicate and increase the impact of their research. These successes have been based on our unique strategy for communicating scientific research. Now we want to share our strategy with other scientists.
During this free two-session online workshop, scientists and communications experts shared inspirational stories and practical advice to increase the impact of scientific research. See the agenda here. Recordings of the short talks and workshop materials are linked below.
