Sense about Science are running a free online workshop for early career researchers (ECRs) as part of our Voice of Young Science network, and aims to encourage ECRs to make their voices heard in public debates about science.
The workshop is FREE for STEM and social science early career researchers, trainees and medical professionals. The aim of the workshop is to encourage ECRs to make their voices heard in public debates about science.
The session will be made up of two panels, a media panel and a policy panel, where ECRs can learn what is expected of them from journalists and policymakers, routes and pathways to engage with media or policy worlds, as well as useful tips and tricks from the panellists and each other. An additional breakout room activity further increases the opportunity for interaction amongst ECRs to discuss challenges they face, share practical advice and expand their networks.
Deadline to apply is 1 March.
