Researchers have on demand the communication of results, either to pursue funding or as in return to actual society’s demands. The efficiency of how this information is communicated is crucial.

The goal of this meeting is to give insights about how researchers should communicate their topic in a simple and popular way.

If you have any suggestion, please contact Livia Atauri Miranda (livia.atauri (AT) unine.ch ) or Sarah Rottet who are in charge of the organization.
