Workshop Science Communication

The highlight of the Alumni Days was the workshop series on Science Communication, one of the most important subjects in a world reeling with several global crises. Science communication facilitates science through storytelling, along with data, facts and experiences as powerful tools to make complex scientific facts understandable. The regional alumni groups that participated in the workshop gained practical knowledge in effectively communicating their work to a larger audience.

The Alumni Days brought the network closer together, helped with information- and experience-sharing and helped develop useful skills by using this as a platform for interdisciplinary exchange for the benefit of science and research.
