Sense About Science will be holding a Standing up for Science media workshop at the University of Manchester on Friday 8 April 2016.

This full day event is free and for early career researchers and scientists in all sciences, engineering and medicine (PhD students, post-docs or equivalent in first job).

During the workshop we combine discussion about science-related controversies in media reporting with practical guidance and tips for how to deal with the media.
