[Met-jobs] Second (Geo)Science Communication School
Castiglione del Lago, Italy, 27 March 2017 - 1 April 2017
EGU GRANTS AVAILABLE!
The school is the result of a collaboration between researchers from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP
), the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (ISAC) and the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication of the University of Copenhagen
. Local organization is provided by island of meetings (iom
) and the school
supported by the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA), by the European
Geosciences Union (EGU), by the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI) and by
the AXA Research Fund.
the school students will learn how to effectively convey important
research results to a public of both experts and laypeople.
Students will learn how:
- to write scientific papers,
- to structure poster and talks for conference presentation,
- to write proposals at international level,
- to communicate science to general public, students, and policymakers,
- to communicate through art and laboratories
- to communicate through social networks and internet
students will receive coaching from experienced researchers (Marie
Curie Alumni) and Euraxess experts on proposal and report drafting.
involved in science communication activities will allow the students to
gain communication technical skills that will be useful in their wider
lives and will remind the students that science is an heritage that
needs to be shared as a part of our culture.
school has the aim of offering overview and training of scientific
communication skills in all its forms. The school will treat
communication not only with an "educative aim" but also with a
"scientific aim". The lecturers will therefore not only present an
overview of science communication from a theoretical point of view, but
also will offer practical activities on abstract/paper writing and
poster editing, on proposal and report drafting, and on how to improve
communication to policymakers. All the lectures will be accompanied by
laboratories and students will experience concrete activities: for
example each student will present a poster at the beginning of the
school and posters will be corrected and improved at the end applying
what learned during the school
; at the end of the school students
will try to provide accurate but concise information about their science
to the general public without using any powerpoint presentation and without using any pc
as it was done during the first edition (http://www.sciencecommunicationschool.org/videos/
