On December 7th, the Institute for Medieval Studies promotes a science communication and writing workshop for non-specialized audiences.

The entire scientific community at IEM and FCSH is invited to participate in this workshop, which is divided into two sessions: the first, led by Beatriz Gil, where the importance of communicating science and how we should do it will be demonstrated. Afterward, Pedro Olavo Simões will explain how we should write for non-specialized audiences in order to enhance societal impact.

It will certainly be an enriching morning that will allow you to acquire new skills and recognize the importance of communicating in the academic environment.
