Creative ways to present your research

In our workshop students and young researchers learn new ways of communicating science and have the opportunity to plan and create ways to present and promote their own research projects.

The Hub is aimed at students and graduates of all subjects and disciplines.

What you should bring along:

What we offer:

· Introduction to science communication, ‘touchable’ science, hands-on didactics, research learning

· Accompaniment and support with the implementation of your ideas

· Feedback and discussion with an expert audience
