Standing up for Science Workshop, 17 November
Voice of Young Scientists are delighted to announce applications for our 17 November ‘Standing up for Science‘ online workshop are open.
We’re proud to support Early Career Researchers (ECRs) at a time when so much else is uncertain. Amid complex, polarising debates on subjects from AI to vaccines, food security, youth justice, radiation and, of course, COVID-19, we aim to equip researchers to engage with the public, journalists and policymakers – helping them to ask useful questions and put research findings and real-world events in context.
We will combine discussion around misrepresentation of science in the media and how evidence influences policy with practical tips and tricks on how ECRs can start standing up for science.
This online workshop is free for early career researchers. Please see our website for details. The application deadline is 17:00 on Monday, 26 October.
