Science Festivals, Researchers’ Days, Open Days… There are numerous occasions on which the general public is invited to come and exchange with researchers. What defines a successful science workshop? How can you catch the public’s attention? How do you explain your research to a lay audience?

In this science communication training, we will present best practices of past events and give you ideas on how to communicate your work through fun, interactive and easily understandable workshops for the general public. The training is offered in English only.
