Learn from the experts: Standing up for Science workshop
Workshop led by Sense about Science – 24 September
Interested in engaging with the public, the media, and policy makers about science and evidence?
‘Standing up for Science’ is a free online workshop from Sense about Science, the charity putting science and evidence in the hands of the public.
Supported by Taylor & Francis, the virtual workshop has been very successful in replacing the in-person event previously scheduled – opening it up to a wider audience online.
Who is the workshop for?
These popular events are for UK-based early career researchers (PhD, post-docs, or equivalent) who want to make their voice heard in public debates.
What happens at the event?
Researchers will learn how the media works; how evidence informs policy; what journalists and policy makers want and need from researchers, and how to communicate research effectively.
