Science Communication is on everyone’s lips – it’s exciting, vital for society and politically intended; it’s even mentioned in the latest coalition agreement.
By no means a mere buzzword, SciComm has become an important ‘ToDo’ in academia. Fields of action are diverse, and scientific expertise is in high demand not just since the beginning of the Covid and climate crises. But how to get in, who to address and how to tackle unwanted feedback?
With Prof. Dr. Annette Leßmöllmann we invited one of the most practised experts in Science Communication to introduce participants to its basics, relevant audiences and engaging concepts.
