Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


APECS Portugal Workshop - StAY POLAR - How to communicate science

26 October 2018, University of Aveiro, Portugal

APECS Portugal workshops cover topics targeting early career researchers, providing free opportunities for professional career development. This year, the IX Workshop APECS Portugal will focus on Science Communication. From scientific conferences, to talks in schools, social media and communicating with policy makers, learning how to communicate well is increasingly relevant to the career development of young researchers. A diverse public requires the researcher to adapt the language to share scientific knowledge in a clear way for every audience. During the workshop, we will have national and international speakers from different institutions sharing their experience communicating with different audiences, including communication of large European scientific projects, communication of scientific journals, and communication with Indigenous communities. Following the talks, we will have a hands-on activity under the same topic, which will stimulate the active participation of early career researchers. The workshop will conclude with a debate on science communication featuring all the invited speakers, and open for public participation. Additionally, the attendants will have opportunities to interact and network with the speakers, as well as other participants and APECS mentors during coffee and lunch breaks.

Since the APECS Portugal workshops take place as part of the Portuguese Conference on Polar Sciences, and along with the science communication topic, this year we will offer prices for best student oral and poster presentation. This will further contribute to engage the development of early career researchers in science communication.
