Standing up for science: hear from researchers, policymakers, and journalists
Workshop led by Sense about Science
Taylor & Francis supports Sense about Science, a charity that aims to put science and evidence in the hands of the public. In March this year, they’re holding one of their popular ‘Standing up for Science’ workshops at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. These free full day events are for early career researchers (PhD, post-docs or equivalent) who want to make their voice heard in public debates.
What happens at a Standing up for Science workshop?
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.
“This workshop was really a great way for me and other EU researchers to get tips for communicating with policy makers and journalists. I am sure these recommendations will be useful.” – David Docquier, Postdoctoral Researcher in Climate Sciences
How to book your place
The next workshop will be held at Vrije Universiteit Brussel on 6 March 2020, and applications are now open. These workshops are very popular, so make sure you book your free place by Friday 7 February.
