Do you have a science communication project you would like to see funded? Interested in getting some feedback on a science communication project you are developing? Join us at the Science Communication Workshop at the FENS Regional Meeting 2021!

The workshop

12 participants will be selected to receive hands-on mentoring on a science communication project they would like to develop in the following three categories:

  • online science communication
  • science communication for younger audiences
  • animal research for non-scientific audiences.

At the end of the workshop, six competitors will be selected to take part in the “Pitch your science communication project” competition organised on 25 August 2021 and maybe win a grant to fund their project!

The best selected project will receive a EUR 1,000 grant. One project per category will be selected.
Participation to this workshop is limited to selected participants.
