Science Communication on Social Media for Beginners


The crises of the last few years have shown us how important it can be for scientists and other academics to be able to communicate with people outside academia or in other fields. But translating from the academic world to the non-academic world or from field to field can be a challenge. Luckily, social media platforms offer a place where everybody can reach everybody else. Thus, social media can be a great place to start and reach the desired audience, facilitating a societal dialogue, a form of informal education that is direly needed nowadays and increasing the visibility of researchers and their work.

To help out academics wanting to start in science communication, this workshop seeks to give you some basics about how to put yourself in your audience’s shoes; get to know the medium and its tools; network with other fellow academic communicators; and find the best content to keep your audience interested. The focus of this workshop will be on Platforms with the biggest presence of the scientific community like LinkedIn, Bluesky, Twitter/X or Mastodon with tips and an overview of your possibilities on other platforms.


You can register for the event one month before the event starts from 9am.
