Sense about Science is delighted to announce that applications are open for the popular ‘Standing up for Science’ workshop.
Early career researchers are invited to join us in Manchester on 29 March 2019. (5 priority places allocated to UoM researchers).
This free workshop is aimed at early career researchers in all social sciences and STEM fields (PhDs, post-docs or equivalent welcome). At these day-long events, participants get the chance to hear directly from and ask questions of: researchers with experience in public engagement, science journalists, and policymakers. It is an opportunity to learn how the media works, how evidence can inform policy, what journalists and policymakers want and need from researchers, and how to involve the public in communicating your research.
