Are you a NERC-funded student or do we fund your scientific research? If so, you are eligible for free training to develop your science communication and public engagement skills. This is a great way to learn how to promote your research findings and ideas to different audiences.

NERC runs approximately nine of these courses a year at its office in Swindon and we currently have places available for 28-29 April, and 20-21 May.

You learn, through hands-on sessions, how:

  • the media works
  • to write effectively
  • to do confident radio interviews
  • to design public engagement activities

Full details available here.

You will need to complete the online registration to apply for your place on a course.
