Organiser: Science Communication @LTV
Why should we communicate our research?
- Your research can make an important contribution to societal development and, if people and organisations both within and outside academia are to benefit, this new knowledge needs to be communicated. Communication is not simply a matter of outreach, it is also about receiving input that helps you to make greater progress and achieve better results than would otherwise have been possible.
- Well-communicated research results make it possible for organisations, politicians and citizens outside the scientific community to make scientifically grounded decisions.
- An active dialogue about research can inspire new generations to further study and provide ongoing research with access to new perspectives and approaches.
- The public has the right to be informed about the results of research financed from public funds.
