How do you start an open conversation about your research?
Samenweten organizes workshops for early career researchers (PhD students and postdocs) of all fields and disciplines to place their research in a broad societal context. During the workshop you discuss with a diverse panel of scientists that are experienced in science communication, science journalists as well as other experts in science communication and public engagement.
What are you going to do during the workshop?
Based on the panel discussion you receive tips on how you can more effectively interact with your target group and you learn what you can gain by engaging the general public with your research. In addition, practical assignments will help you get into contact with societal organisations.
