Another successful event: April 2021
Most researchers know that talking to a general public about their project is not an easy task. It requires some skills and you need to understand your audience. Of course, these skills can be taught. Our recent event was completely themed our this topic: “communicating your science”. We invited speakers from very different walks of (scientific) life to talk about their experiences and perspectives, ranging from a professor of Public understanding of Science to the Head of Science at the NRC/podcast host and patients who discussed their needs. Considering the registrations and feedback, the event was a huge success! For…
