COST gave its Early Stage Researchers the opportunity to take part in a media workshop organised by Sense About Science.

Do you think it is important for good science and evidence to be communicated to a wider audience? What can you do about misconceptions and misinformation about science? COST Early Stage Researchers joined this one-day media workshop to find out more and develop their experience.

Topic under discussion during the sessions included:

  • Science in the media
  • What journalists are looking for
  • Standing up for science and what can early stage researchers do to encourage good science and evidence in the public domain?

Sense About Science is a small charity that equips people to make sense of science and evidence.This workshop was part of a 2 day conference on communicating scientific research. For more information on the full conference please visit
