The next Voice of Young Scientists “Standing up for Science” workshop is being held at The University of Manchester, on Friday 1 April 2022. Join us to find out how to contribute research findings to public discussions and engage effectively with journalists and policymakers.
The free workshop is open to STEM and social science early career researchers (PhD students, post-docs or equivalent in first job), trainees and medical professionals.
Join us to find out how to make your voice heard in public debates about science. Meet researchers who have engaged with the media or politicians, learn from respected journalists including Dominic Hughes, BBC Health Correspondent, find out how researchers can inform policymakers like Kate Green MP, get hints and tips from communications experts, and find out how to involve the public in communicating research.
You will learn about how to contribute your voice as an early career researcher to public discussions about research and evidence, understand the societal and personal benefits of getting involved, and see how research is used in the media and policymaking. You will take away some tangible and practical engagement ideas.
Complete this form to apply for a free place. Please note, it is anticipated that this workshop will be heavily over-subscribed and there are limited places.
