The ultimate goal of scientific advances is to have an impact in society. In this respect, communication of new scientific methods and results, and the popular outreach of science are of extreme importance to fill the gap between research and broad social environments. There are different sectors of society and consequently many ways that science can be brought to the public in effective ways: i.e. from spreading the news of scientific discoveries to stimulating kids into this fascinating world.
In this course, now in its 4th edition, we gather together experts in different areas of science communication and outreach to share their knowledge and experience with a broad audience, with the aim that attendees will be inspired to find their ways to contribute to scientific dissemination.
This is a graduate course for which Ph.D. students at Uppsala University can get 2hp for their studies. Ph.D. students from the TekNat & MedFarm faculties will be preferentially admitted till 30th of March but all other participants are welcome to apply.
Note: this course is free of charge for all participants, but a no-show fee will incur in case of absence without notification in advance.
