CESAM and CICECO jointly organize Science Communication workshops

CESAM and CICECO jointly organize Science Communication workshops

As part of the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the Center for Environmental and Marine Studies (CESAM) and the Aveiro Institute of Materials (CICECO), associated laboratories of the University of Aveiro, a series of workshops dedicated to Science Communication is being organized, aiming to empower researchers with knowledge and techniques to better communicate their work. The first one takes place already on May 4th.

According to Sir Mark Walport (2013), “Science isn’t finished until it’s communicated. The communication to wider audiences is part of the job of being a scientist, and so how you communicate is absolutely vital.” However, communicating science to non-specialized audiences is not always an easy task. In order to enable CESAM and CICECO researchers to better communicate their results, the associated laboratories of the University of Aveiro are organizing a series of free workshops, limited to 20 participants.

Applications from other researchers will also be accepted, if there are vacancies, and priority will be given in order of registration.

The program of the first series includes three workshops, which will take place in the meeting room on level 5 of Building 3, from 03:00pm to 05:00pm:

May 4, 2022 - Writing a press release - Pedro Farias (Press Officer | UA)

June 29, 2022 - Capturing images with a cell phone for science dissemination - Joaquim Pedro Ferreira (Communication Manager | CESAM&CICECO, UA)

July 13, 2022 - Image editing - Luís Carvalheiro (Technician | CESAM, UA)

A second series dedicated to other themes related to Science Communication is planned for September 2022.
