Saturday, 22 September, 14:30 - 17:30 Gallieni 7 

How to explain your research to your granny: scientists' parents, grandparents and friends often look puzzled when they are confronted with science and they don't seem to understand the importance of the individual scientist's research. Participants of this session will learn how to communicate their own research effectively to non-scientists.


Participants will learn about:

  • How to structure the information to be conveyed
  • What kind of language should be used or avoided
  • How to spark enthusiasm and maintain interest


Cost for this workshop: €20
