WORKSHOP: Transfer your science into news

Tuesday 11 February 2020
Good quality science remains the foundation. To be truly successful in a science career, however, it helps if you can also communicate your research to funders and lay public. How do you convey your main message in a press release or on the worldwide web? Bring your own article, dissertation or report, submerge in the role of science communicator and create at least a intriguing header and first paragraph that will make your science into news. Transforming science into readable news is a profession. However, this workshop will offer a crash course into the do’s and don’ts.
