Workshop: Communicating science to non-scientists

September 16, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Faculty often have to describe their research to non-scientists such as donors or the media. This can often prove difficult when you’re immersed in the science. Back by popular demand, Jean-luc Doumont will come to the university for a new session on communication and will offer advice that works well for addressing both scientists and non-scientists alike. 

Doumont is an articulate, entertaining and thought-provoking speaker who successfully reaches a wide range of audiences worldwide, as a trainer or an invited speaker at companies, top-ranked universities, research laboratories and major conferences. He is an engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering and holds a Ph.D. in applied physics from Stanford University.

When: Monday, Oct. 10

Time: 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. (Breakfast will be provided)

Where: BSRB Seminar Rooms (1st floor)
