30 June @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The UKCCSRC is holding its next ECR Awayday on 30th June 2021, 12pm-2.30pm on ‘Making your research accessible to a lay audience’. The event includes the launch the UKCCSRC ECR Science Communication competition.

Taking place over lunch time, the Awayday will look at how to talk about your research with people who aren’t familiar with what you do and will explore the questions being asked. Broadcast journalism tutor Matt Robson will provide training on making a short research video, using technology you might have at home, with advice on effective style and format.

The latest ECR competition will be launched during the event and ties in with the Awayday activities.  It’s an opportunity not to be missed!
