Write for Success: The Art of Scientific Communication

  • Multi-function room 1, Matrix Level 5

The ability to write in a clear, informative and engaging way is a critical part of the scientist’s toolbox, as it allows the broader community to share in the excitement of basic scientific discovery. To nurture greater trust and generate excitement among the general public requires the engagement of science professionals who are highly trained both in their technical field of expertise as well as in the ability to communicate their discoveries to the world. This workshop was organized with a special focus on science communication as well as a career talk by a scientist working in communications.
