The Basics of Science Communication
How do you actually communicate science to a non-academic audience? And why should you communicate science anyway? We created a series of eight short videos about important aspects of science communication.
The videos introduce a practical framework for communicating science, gives you tips for writing comprehensibly and guide you towards developing a concise and understandable core message for your research topic. We present the main protagonists who are involved in communicating science professionally and show how science ends up in the news. Online media offer fantastic opportunities for scientists to communicate directly with a broader audience. Ultimately, we address tips and strategies for communicating topics that are often perceived as controversial.
For those videos, we collaborated with moderator Shruti Mandhani. The project was partly funded by the Volkswagenstiftung.
