Venue: room PA1, Mathematics Pavillion, IST, Lisbon

Communicating science outside the scientific world is not an easy task: the language used “between peers” is difficult to understand and the lack of a narrative thread can make the subjects uninteresting and too complicated. That is why the opportunity to send a message that is important to all of us gets easily lost, especially in an "era" of misinformation and "fake news". Com-municating science in a clear and accessible way can be the path that leads to a science for all.
This workshop is aimed at all the researchers and professors who need to communicate science to the general public. No registration is required.
