Training: Web video training for students and young researchers

You want to communicate about your research or your passion of science through a web video? 

If you are motivated to learn to produce your own science web video, join us for a thrilling two-day training on Friday and Saturday 24 & 25 May 2019. Organised by the FNR, in cooperation with Wissenschaft im Dialog, this workshop will give you all insights and tools on how to produce your own science web video. Before moving on to practice, a keynote talk by the famous German edutainer, science journalist and scientist Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim (Quarks & Co., schön schlau, maiLab), will launch the event.

During the workshop

For the two days of the training, you will work in teams and each team will produce a web video (at least a part). After the workshop, you can publish the video on

Specialised bloggers and science communicators from Wissenschaft im Dialog, together with the support of science communicators from the FNR will hold the training. The workshop will be held in English but your video can be done in these languages: English or German, but also in French or Luxembourgish, but in this case you will need subtitles (we can help you with that).

Your participation at this workshop will also allow you to participate in the Fast Forward Science contest. We would really encourage you to do so!
