Scientific organizations insist that researchers should get more involved in outreach activities. Scientists are aware that they contribute positively to society, but confronted with the need to devote time and resources to communicating their results. The public is at times eager to know more, at times showing untrust towards scientists. Communicators are there to help, but they are rarely invited to give training within the institutions. Still, opportunities for scientists to get a train in communication techniques are increasing.
Is this enough? Are courses, seminars, workshops proving to be effective in training scientists in communication? Are institutions really aiming to improve their staff's communication skills? Are there new opportunities rising for both scientists and communicators?
In this panel a group of experts will share their views.
The event, open to the public, is organized within the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice “Research Communication Week”, in collaboration with EUPRIO and the EU2020 QUEST project, and is endorsed by ProESOF 2020 – Towards Trieste 2020 Euroscience Open Forum.
Only EUPRIO and AICUN members can participate to the afternoon sessions.
Ca’ Foscari University colleagues, who are not AICUN neither EUPRIO members, are requested to open their account on MyEUPRIO, before registering to these activities. They can attend both the activities for free.
