This fall, SciMingo will launch a science communication academy for enthusiastic researchers who want to learn how to share their research as a comprehensible and compelling story. In the first stage, we will focus on writing, infographics, and video.
Would you like to share your research with people outside your field, but don't know how to start? Or do you already have some experience in science communication, but would like to pursue this further? We at SciMingo would like to guide you in this. This autumn, we are launching a Science Communication Academy to teach researchers how to communicate clearly about their research.
Initially, we will organise 4 training courses, including:
- Popularising writing (in collaboration with Eos): how to mould your research into a clear and attractive article
- Pitch training (in collaboration with The Floor is Yours): learn how to share your research in a clear and convincing pitch
- Data visualisation (in collaboration with Baryon): how to translate complex data into powerful infographics
No experience required
The Scicomm academy will be an accessible initiative. You do not need to have any experience in science communication in order to participate. Moreover, we will work with democratic enrolment fees.
Hands-on & result-oriented
The training courses will be intensive tracks. During the practical workshops, you get to work hands-on. Through further individual feedback and follow-up, we help you work towards a concrete end product (blog post, infographic, video), which could be published by our media partner Eos, among others.
