Frankfurt. July 2023. science. communicated!

So....

...why should you join?

In many current debates it is becoming increasingly difficult for science to make its voice heard. In times of so-called „alternative facts“ scientific results are sometimes even deliberately ignored or manipulated to gain advantages.

In the future, this social debate will become increasingly stronger and probably also more aggressive.
Many researchers are consciously withdrawing more and more from this discussion. There are certainly many reasons for this, but it ultimately leads to the debate being conducted less and less with empirically verifiable data and more emotionally charged, irrational and interest-driven in the long term.

The withdrawal of scientists from the discourse is largely due to a lack of time, knowledge and structures.

The European summer school brings together young scientists to give them an idea on how to communicate their science.

Topics

The European Summer School on Science Communication combines input from experienced lecturers with practical exercises. You will create a couple of pieces of science communication, explore different formats and meet great people while doing so. Among others the following topics will be discussed. 

After the school you participate in the workshop SCI-COM-E – the European Meeting on Science Communication. Here you can build your network and meet interesting people from various fields of science communication.

Introduction to Science Communication

A short introduction into science communication at the very beginning. This will get us up to speed to tackle the projects.

How to break down your science

Science is complicated. Science communication should not be. But how do we match these statements?

Social Media

Communicating your science online has great potential. Chosing the right platform with the right formats will be the topic of this workshop.

Writing

Writing in any shape and form is one of the oldest form of science communication. How to do it well will be discussed during the ES3C.

Digital Science Communication

Using digital tools is a great way to make life easier in science communication. Various examples will be shown during this workshop.

Video

One of the most used formats for science communication! How to start a video format from the first idea to the final publication will be discussed here.
