(Geo)Science Communication School (

Castiglione del Lago, Italy, 7 May 2018 – 12 May 2018

Registration deadline 28 February 2018 

The THIRD edition of the (Geo)Science Communication School is now online! 
The school is the result of a collaboration between researchers from the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) 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 is supported by the European Geosciences Union (EGU).

Attending 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 the CV and motivation letter,
- 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.

Also students will receive coaching from experienced researchers (Marie Curie Alumni) and Euraxess experts on proposal and report drafting.

Being 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.

The 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 (
