BECC-ESG Workshop on Communicating Research Across Academic Boundaries

Event start: 20171012
End date: 20171012

Event description

Workshop description

Under the overarching theme of communicating research across academic boundaries, this workshop engages in challenges both within academia – working with transdisciplinary projects – and between academia and society – communicating results, interacting with media, and dealing with science scepticism. It is an opportunity to interact with researchers spanning both the globe and academic fields and to discuss some of the mutual challenges facing researchers today.


10:15-12:00 Block 1: This block focuses on science-science communication, working with issues of conducting research across academic fields, identifying transdisciplinary research questions, as well as discussing whether interdisciplinary in itself is even desirable.

12:00-13:00 Lunch

13:00-13:50 Block 2: During this section we turn our focus to communication between science and society. What are the challenges and pitfalls? How can we as researchers encourage public engagement while avoiding misinterpretations? Kimberly Nicholas will give a short
presentation of her experiences following a controversial publication this summer.

13:50-14:15 Coffee & cake

14:15-15:00 Open lecture on academia and the media by journalist Jack Werner


The workshop is free of charge and includes lunch and coffee.
