The International Science Council, as part of its Public Value of Science programme, in partnership with the Falling Walls International Year of Science Engagement initiative is convening a series of webinars exploring the capacities that research institutions need to practice progressive, effective science communication in the current global context.
The series will provide discursive analysis on science communication practice along with useful practical tips for researchers and research managers.
These webinars will feature Flash Talks to showcase research and programme initiatives of interest. To be sure we select the strongest examples of work to share with our audience of researchers and research institutions, the webinar conveners are inviting submissions to consider for the showcase from across the world and academic disciplines.
Therefore we are asking leading academics and academic institutions, universities, research organizations, companies, private and public research centers, academies, research funders and individuals to self-nominate outstanding science projects and innovative initiatives.
Selected submissions will have 5 minutes to make a presentation during a webinar (this can be pre-recorded) describing their work and how it elaborates at least one of the key discussion points for the webinar.
The series will start on May 26th and run every Thursday for 5 weeks.
Flash Talk submission deadlines are as follows:
- Webinar One, Understanding Common Misconceptions about Audiences – Flash Talk submissions are closed for this webinar
- Webinar Two, Understanding Digital Communities & Social Media – 20 May
- Webinar Three, Lessons from climate change communication – 27 May
- Webinar Four, Science Communication in Multi-Institutional Collaborations – 03 June
- Webinar Five, Understanding Capacity Support for Science Communication – 10 June
