Why it is important

You play a central role in public communication about science alongside professional communicators and journalists. If you want to reach people outside your scientific community, you have to get to the heart of your research topics in a targeted and generally understandable way. Therefore we organized an excellent workshop series for you where you can train your communication skills.

The third workshop together with Dr. Caroline Schmid and Anne Weiß, M.A. M.Sc. deals with the basics of successful outreach with a lot of practical relevance such as elevator and research pitch.
