Are you interested in developing the real-world impact of your research? How about increasing your public profile? If you’ve answered yes to any one of those questions, then the Research Communication Day is for you.
This day event on Wednesday 23 May 2018, 10.30 – 16.00, will provide you with a better understanding of the benefits of communicating your research, how you can go about it and who can help you with this within BU.
Subjects covered will include: planning and promoting your Festival of Learning event, practising in our radio studio and in front of a camera, writing for the research website and sharing your research via social media.
You’ll also have the chance to pitch your work to Stephen Harris, Commissioning and Science Editor for The Conversation. Stephen covers science, technology and health for The Conversation. He previously spent five years as senior reporter and special projects editor at The Engineer, the world’s oldest technology magazine and professional journal.
