Published in 23/4/2019
On the 17 April, CESAM organized an event to improve and give more communication skills to its members. The event THE PERFECT PITCH IN 5’ lasted all day and the participants found the event very useful and were satisfied with the used approached.
During the morning there were several talks with experts that covered issues such as general tips on how to make good pitches (Miguel Leal from the company Scite – Science Communication and Joaquim Macedo Sousa from HIESE), the relevance on communicate to non-scientific audiences (Pedro Farias, SCIRP, Universidade de Aveiro), and some design tips aimed to help to optimize the presentations (Joana Quental, ID+, Universidade de Aveiro). The room was crowded and the audience was clearly more aware for new aspects related with science communication.
During the afternoon, there were 3 parallel workshops targeting CESAM non-doctorate members. One of the workshops was for MSc students and research fellows of CESAM and was boosted by Cecília Guerra and Susana Ambrósio from CIDTFF, Universidade de Aveiro. The other workshop targeted PhD students and was oriented by Miguel Leal, from the company Scite – Science Communication. PhD students also had the opportunity to participate in a workshop together with the PhD students of Design. This workshop was boosted by Joana Quental, ID+, Universidade de Aveiro and was an opportunity for CESAM students work closely with Design students and have a different perspective from their own research work.
