Have you ever wondered about how to involve the public with your research? Would you like to improve your communication skills to talk to the media and the public? What to say during an interview to get your message across? Would you like to feel safer in front of a TV camera or when communicating on social media? Register now for the FNR’s media training for researchers, taking place on Thursday, 17 October 2019. Update: This training is now fully booked.
*Update 26 September: This training is now fully booked. If you would like to join a waiting list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org*
The FNR invites all interested researchers (PhD, Postdocs) and science communicators in Luxembourg (priority will be given to FNR beneficiaries) to a half-day of media training. The training session will help you to improve the dissemination of your work and explore how an engagement with the media and the public can benefit you and your research. You will acquire the theory and practical skills that you need to stay on top during an interview or any other public appearance and communicate your message to the public.
