The call to communicate and engage as scientist with society is getting louder and louder from, amongst others, politics, society and subsidy requirements. But how do you do this in the right and effective way? Being nuanced is second nature to most scientists, while the public debate and media seems to ask for a firm role in putting the scientific perspective in the spotlight.

How do you get involved in the public debate? In which 'language' do you communicate when you engage or ‘do’ citizen science? And how do you ensure that your research is used rather than misused by politicians? What are the opportunities and risks of being visible? What support does the EUR offer?

In this crash course, public engagement expert Stephanie Helfferich from Utrecht University tells about best practices and focuses on dialogue and listening. Scientific information specialist at the UB Çisem Gurel on how to communicate science to a lay audience. Karst Oosterhuis gives you the do’s and don’ts when performing in the media. Adinda Ceelen from ISS speaks about partnering with academics to communicate about research and broker knowledge. And former politician prof. Ronald van Raak speaks about his experiences of how academic output is ‘used’ in Dutch politics.
