Spot on PoGS Community 2022 "Let´s talk about science"

Let`s talk about science! Science communication thrives on exchange and we invite PhD candidates and postdocs to make their research visible and to enter into dialogue within and outside the academic world.

Look forward to an interactive program on science communication with workshops, science stories, show act and room for relaxed networking with the PoGS Community.

Together we will go on a journey of discovery:  What is a kitchen shout-out? Tweeting or pitching? And what do postcards, building blocks and maize actually have to do with science communication? Let's find out!
