Once upon a time there was (science) story – science communication workshop

An interactive workshop for researchers to think about how they communicate their work through the lens of storytelling. Understanding what makes a good story will help you to communicate more clearly with the media, peers, even funders. Edwin Colyer is a British science journalist with more than 25 years of professional experience in science writing and science journalism. He has spent one month in Brno as a Masaryk University Science Journalism Fellow financed by the European Research Council (ERC). This workshop is an excellent opportunity for knowledge transfer.


1. What makes a good story

• Think like your audience
• DIY: make us laugh, cry or blow our minds

2. Learning outcomes
