Communication competence in doctoral education – enhancing the abilities to reach out and bridging the gap!

How can teaching about science communication be integrated in doctoral programmes, what should its content be, and how does it affect and equip students for future careers in and outside of academia?

The role of the researcher is undergoing change: researchers are now asked to engage in open science and to support transparency and inclusivity in their research. At the same time, and for a number of different reasons, scholars are increasingly looking for careers outside academia.

This session speaks to these issues by focusing on the development of science communication skills as part of doctoral education. Its starting point is that such training sits at the intersection of a number of key concerns in contemporary science policy: the need to strengthen science-society relations, to equip junior scholars with transferable skills, and to build scientific literacy in the wider public.
