What will this week cover?

In this article we describe the contents of week 3: working with journalists, and institutional approaches to science communication

Welcome to the third and final week of the course !

In the previous week, we continued our discussion on how to develop a solid, yet appealing, scientific message for your audience.

This week, we will continue to discuss the delivery of your message and learn the importance of a relationship with the media and journalists.

In the last activity of the course we will explore more institutional aspect of science communication: what does a scientific culture unit do?
Why should universities and research center talk with different stakeholders, and maybe share some decisional power with them?

As in the previous weeks, we invite you to share your thoughts and opinions on the topics we will touch, as well as any experience that can help your fellow learners in their journey.

We wish you good learning,
