Communicating your science

Thursday 3rd October 2019

10.00 - 13.00 - Ca' Foscari Challenge School, Vega

with Francesco Fiondella, Director of Communications, IRI Earth Institute, Columbia University

Exclusively dedicated to PhD and Master students in Science and Management of Climate Change

You as scientists are increasingly expected to be effective communicators of your research and of your field in general. Whether you are engaging other scientists (inside and outside of your discipline), funders and potential donors, policy makers or the general public, the theory and best practices of good communication are similar.

The workshop will focus on two areas of communication: ways to think about your research and write about it for nontechnical audiences; and how to design effective, engaging posters.

Over the course of the workshop we will run through a few writing and thinking exercises to put some of these ideas into practice, and hold a poster session ‘critique’ for those of you who have made or are making posters for upcoming conferences.

This workshop is exclusively dedicated to PhD and Master students in Science and Management of Climate Change.

Masters and PhD students in Science and Management of Climate Change can sign up here.
