Communicating Science to the Media

Because science impacts almost all aspects of human life, it is important for the public to be well-informed through the media about current scientific research. For this reason, scientific institutions must foster good relations with the media; an important transferrable skill for every scientist is the ability to successfully communicate research results to non-scientists.
This one-day seminar covers the basics of working effectively with the media. The topics will include:
- Why should scientists communicate with journalists?
- An overview of the media landscape.
- Key principles of communication with non-scientists.
- Various instruments for communication with the media.
This seminar targets doctoral students who want to acquire transferrable skills for a career in scientific research, media relations or science journalism. The seminar will include an interactive workshop requiring active participation.
