Next Training Sessions/

This session aims to complement the lessons learned during previous seminars, focusing on how to properly and effectively communicate research results.

The objectives of this training are that participants:

– Understand the different elements that play in communication and how to manage them actively (speaker, listener, message, channel, noise). Reflect together on what are the key elements for effective communication.

– Learn the basics of storytelling techniques as the grounds onto which one builds particular communication mechanisms, and get experience by working some use cases.

– Deepen up in the educational power of communication.

– Experiment with new communication possibilities also useful for science (podcasts, blogs, memes, masterclasses…).

This training, which is addressed to any researcher or technician, will take place on Thursday 24th of November, at the Events Hall located in the ESCI (floor -4).

The last session of this series will provide researchers with a series of writing tips and practices that may contribute to their success in their future proposals for international projects.

The objectives of this training are that participants:

  •  Learn fundamental concepts and methodologies from “storytelling” and explore their possible application when preparing documentation for an R&D project.
  •  Learn and practice about the different proposal writing styles: The basics of “Persuasive writing” and the balance between scientific and journalistic language.
  •  Get to know the various stylistic instruments that can help to increase the readability of our proposals, as well as their importance during the evaluation processes within competitive calls.

This training, which is addressed to any researcher or technician, will take place on Friday 25th of November, at the Events Hall located in the ESCI (floor -4).
