We have the great pleasure to welcome freelance science journalist Eva Wolfangel at the Department of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems of the University of Stuttgart. On 25th February 2019, she will give a press workshop for our SFB 1313 doctoral students. The workshop will be held in German.
During the workshop, you get the possibility to learn how to communicate your complex scientific contents to a broad non-scientific audience. You develop journalistic tools to identify relevant topics in your own research projects that are interesting for journalists and the public. You will learn to prepare your content accordingly and to write a first small report. – A workshop that helps to reflect the own work and to rethink science and research communication.
