Early-career researchers work close to the roots of the research practice where they are confronted with unique difficulties, but also with the opportunity to have a lasting impact on the creation of a better future. With this workshop Ms. Sattler aims to provide attendees with a basic knowledge of best practices in the field of science communication, outreach, inreach and ways to connect with their peers, the public and policy makers. Participants will learn about the fundaments of communicating science, learn about the importance of clear and transparent communication and which paths are best suited to their interests and skills.

Ms. Sattler will share her journey as a science communicator as well as explain how researchers benefit from being present on social media.

Participants will learn more about Berlin and Germany-based projects they can take part in and leave the workshop with a better understanding of why science communication is important.

Workshop goals include building scientists’ communication skills and confidence in engaging
with public audiences, providing best practices for use of different communication methods and mechanisms, as well as learning how to write your own pitch, find your target audiences for science communication formats and how they can approach audiences with an anti-science sentiment.


The workshop encourages the active involvement of the participants and features the following didactic elements: case discussions, problem-based learning in small groups, information input and plenary discussions.
