This is one of the most complete courses on Scientific Communication and Outreach that are out there. It should be a must for anyone considering a career in Science.
This course totally changed my mind about science communication and gave me the right perspective. I think this should be part of the education of every scientist!
The best course I've taken in Sweden! Amazing teachers and speakers! The things you learn in the course is not only applicable in your science communication, but also in communicating in your CV and in job hunting. Highly recommended course!
I would definitely attend to this workshop again. I got inspired from the speakers, participants and organisers. I came away with new ideas, tools, experiences that now I can easily apply to communicate my science, and also new projects about science communication where I would like to take part.
Great initiative! Interesting, informative, diversified, balanced and fun. Wonderful organization and amazing atmosphere. Hope it catches on; highly recommended!
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 6th 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 April 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.
