Act like a news editor and make your own research field more visible to others. Seminar for scientists, academics and communications professionals

As humans we instinctively react to news. We look up when things happen. But we don’t have an instinct for reporting and sharing news systematically. This is something we have to learn.

Mike Young, the former Editor of the University Post, will reveal some of the tricks of the trade based on his experience in managing newsrooms and reporting science and research.

He will show you how to cut through the noise and find field-specific tailored news via desktops and smartphones, and off screen in connection with meetings and events.

The seminar is open to all scientists, students and communications professionals at the University of Copenhagen.
Come and join us!
