Workshop scientific storytelling

Communicate the societal impact of your research.
As a researcher, it goes without saying that you already have a great deal of experience writing scientific texts. This writing workshop teaches you how to explain your research in understandable language, and looks at the channels you can use to achieve this goal. You will learn how to tailor your communication to reach a broad audience: the general public, the business community or government organisations. This workshop will call on your creativity, and you will be asked to look at your work and your field of research from multiple perspectives. You will also get hands-on experience writing your own blog, press release or opinion piece. You will learn how to communicate the societal impact of your research and how to increase the exposure of your scientific work.

Length, dates, costs
The workshop consists of two session of three hours each and will be organised online. The dates are 25 May and 8 June.
The costs amount to € 425,-.

Amal Chatterjee is a writer, a writing tutor and has extensive experience in giving courses on scientific and creative writing for researchers. He also teachers at Oxford University.
