Theme B: Communication

Under this important theme we provide a range of training opportunities covering three main areas of science communication:

  • · Writing skills
  • · Oral Presentations skills
  • · Public Understanding of Science

The first two of these themes focus on all aspects of science communication to peers within the scientific community. Our writing courses cover a spectrum of needs from beginner's level to advanced courses on good writing style and grant proposal writing. For oral presentations skill development, we offer complementary courses, covering all aspects of planning and delivering a sound scientific presentation, performance skills and preparation of visual aids.

Under the third theme, public understanding of science, we run a variety of creative options for scientists to explore ways of getting complex scientific messages across to a general audience.
