Title: Communicating your research: lessons from Bitescience
By: Esther Rozendaal, Moniek Buijzen, & Crystal Smit
Description: It is very likely that your research is also relevant for nonacademic audiences, such as societal stakeholders, policy makers, or the more general public. Unfortunately, the academic output you are producing is often not accessible to these audiences. Scientific reports are often difficult get access to, too complex, and, let’s face it, a bore to read. Therefore, this workshop will help you to get your message across to nonacademic audiences.
We discuss ways to provide access to your growing scientific expertise, for example by using social media, and to present knowledge in an attractive manner. Importantly, you will learn to write a ‘Bitescience Research Update’, grasping and formulating your most relevant findings in bitesize portions.https://www.bitescience.com/
