Communication Seminar

Juan Sarasua
Examples of communication based on real science examples, using scientific articles, press releases, media appearances, etc.


How digital media is changing the way science is communicated. How the linear model of communication in science (paper – press release – news media – to the public) has changed nowadays and what kind of tools young scientists can use. Students will see examples of social media used by scientists, journalists, media (general and specialized) and institutions.


Hands-on workshop

Juan Sarasua
Why do you need to communicate? Identifying the audiences, outside and inside the scientific arena. How to develop key messages, define the audience and choose the right tools to target it. What can I use to communicate my research? Identify their content and create a story (video, audio, press release, social media campaign, etc).
