Thai Summer School on Science Communication

November 2023, Nakhon Ratchasima

Thai Summer School on Science Communication


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



The program starts on November 06 and ends November 10, 2023.


The school is for everyone who wants to communicate their science better.


The TS3C will take place at the Suranaree University of Technology in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

How much?

The school is supported by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), thus . Please check whether you can apply below.


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.

Breaking down your science

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

Storytelling and Podcasting

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

Study and research in Germany

How to handle and present science in the media 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.


In common projects we will work on your science communication projects.


The program starts Monday, November 06 at 9:30 and ends Friday, November 10. 

The detailed program will be given at the school.

The TS3C is supported by DAAD

Since the school is supported by DAAD we can organize the school free of charge. However due to large interested we have to make a selection of students.



Successful applicants will receive free accommodation including breakfast and lunch


We can accept a limited number of 40 students with a clear interest in heavy-ion and hadron physics and science communication.
