Juggling Science Communication
Panel discussion on Wednesday, 8 November 2023, 6:30 pm
Research communication and transfer are becoming increasingly important in the academic system – not merely as buzzwords and something „nice to have“, but as an integral part of the role as a researcher. However, researchers face multiple challenges and demands from various fronts, particularly during the postdoc phase. Why can it be beneficial to engage in research communication activities, and how to find the time and resources for these additional responsibilities?
The Hamburg Research Academy cordially invites you to the English-language panel discussion "Juggling Science Communication: Communicating Research While Navigating the Academic System" at the Museum of Nature – Zoology. Following the panel, there will be a get-together with finger food, providing an opportunity to continue the discussion and explore the museum. The event is part of the International Researcher Day, but you are welcome to attend it independently.
- 6 pm – Doors open
- 6:30 pm – Panel discussion
- 7:30 pm – Get-together with finger food and the opportunity to visit the exhibition

All scientific research is worth nothing if it is not disseminated. Science communication is an essential skill for a successful academic career and beyond.

Science Communication can only be one of several measures to make the scientific working methods and characteristics of scientific findings comprehensible to society. We need science to understand why people do not want to believe in science (anymore).

If science communication is developing from a ‘nice-to-have’ into a ‘must-have’ for researchers, they need support for this new task.

The knowledge generated at universities must be heard, accepted and actively used in order to be effective. Thus, a suitable language must always be found and used for this.
