12 July 2024 – Mini Symposium Science Communication

Communicating science effectively? New insights from science communication and science journalism research for researchers’ changing roles

As researchers, we are expected to communicate about our research to societal stakeholders. And, increasingly, we are asked to engage with a wider audience in our research. How can we do that in the best way and communicate our science effectively?

In this mini-symposium we will discuss recent research findings from science communication, science journalism and citizen science to better understand changes for researchers. We will reflect on researchers’ current and future roles within and towards society.

This mini-symposium is for researchers and practitioners who are interested in learning about and sharing insights and experiences on the dynamics around science communication, science journalism and citizen science.

Confirmed key note speakers: dr. Marta Entradas, LSE and Universidad de Lisboa; dr. Mikihito Tanaka, Waseda University

Venue: Langezijds room 2101, University of Twente

Time: 11:30 – 16:30 hours
