Speaker: John Dudley, Professor of Physics at the Université Bourgogne-Franche-Comté and the CNRS Institute FEMTO-ST in Besancon, France.

Being able to effectively communicate science to different audiences is essential for all researchers, but is especially important for students and recent graduates looking to establish a career in academia or industry. This Webinar will provide a general overview of the Science Communication ecosystem, from tips on how to effectively communicate the key points of your research to a specialist audience, to more general issues on how to engage with the public and organize outreach events. It will also describe some career opportunities in Science Communication. It will then be followed by a Q&A session.
