SimTech Continues to Elevate Science Communication with New Workshop Series

April 17, 2024

Building on the success of its inaugural workshop series last winter term, SimTech is proud to announce a new lineup of workshops tailored for early career researchers eager to hone their science communication skills. This initiative is part of SimTech’s ongoing commitment to solidify and enhance science communication training.

Set for July, the upcoming workshops offer participants a dual opportunity: to master the art of creating compelling visual narratives that make scientific topics both accessible and engaging, and to learn strategic communication techniques for grant proposals. These sessions will focus on aligning communication goals with target audiences and effectively planning resources, crucial skills for researchers.

Effective science communication is vital not only for informing the public but also for influencing policy and securing research funding. For excellence clusters and thus third-party funded projects, such as SimTech, clear and impactful communication is essential. It not only enhances the visibility and understanding of research but also fosters public support and facilitates policy decision.

Following the promising outcomes of the winter session, this series aims to to further develop robust communication skills among researchers, empowering them to simplify complex ideas and effectively engage with broader audiences.
