International Seminar Research and Science Communication


Communicating Research in an International Context Join our seminar and raise your institution’s performance

Research and science are increasingly international. This requires effective and well-handled research communication activities to increase both the feasibility and the visibility of the scientific institution. Furthermore, research and science communication have also become extremely relevant for external funding. Specifically, the European Union is emphasizing science communication activities when supporting research, especially in programmes like Horizon 2020.

This 2-day event is part of the Communication Days 2020.
