New academy in Scientific Communication

It is becoming increasingly important for researchers to communicate their research to a broader audience, such as the public, the press and funding organizations. However, communicating complex specialized findings in an understandable manner is challenging.

Nature Research Academies has developed a new academy in Scientific Communication to give researchers the foundations to communicate their work, as well as the platforms they should be using to do so.

  • 1-day workshops
  • Available to institutions globally, to host on-site
  • Presented by an expert trainer from Nature Research, with content and workbooks reviewed by a team of Nature Research editors
  • For up to 250 researchers at all levels, from mixed disciplines or tailored to a specific discipline: life sciences, physical sciences, clinical research, or social sciences

Feedback from participants

“This type of workshop is exactly what scientists need to be able to communicate.”

“Very useful course with an amazing lecturer who keeps your attention from the first minute to the last moment.”
