COST offered Actions’ Chairs and Vice-Chairs unique training opportunities to maximise their Action communication potential.

As part of the COST Outreach Strategy and in collaboration with Ecsite, the European Network of Science Centres and Museums, COST invited Action Chairs and Vice-Chairs to the fourth edition of its advanced science communication training on 13 and 14 April 2011.

This course was hosted by state-of-the-art ‘Citta della Scienza’ centre (Science City) in Naples, Italy.

COST aims to maximise the outcome of its Actions’ results and their outreach potential. In order to develop stronger networks, while also promoting their visibility, COST Action Chairs and Vice-Chairs were given the opportunity to build and manage an appropriate communication strategy for their collaborative research. The training course provided the tools to effectively communicate research results to the general public, as well as colleagues in the scientific community, funding bodies and decision-makers.

This hands-on course consisted of two days of practical and group exercises, and gathered a selected group of participants eager to share similar communication challenges and to expand their research communication potential. Thanks to its unique partnership with Ecsite, COST offered the best combination of training and experience in scientific communication.

Please note that these event are by personal invitation only and the number of seats is strictly limited. In order to offer all COST Actions the possibility of a science communication training, only one participant per Action can participate in this training during the 4-year duration of the Action.
