Science Communication is the topic of the last ITI Talk of 2022

The last ITI Talk of 2022 will feature a special guest. On December 16, we will hear Joana Lobo Antunes talk about science communication and why it matters to researchers.

During this talk, Lisbon and Funchal’s Interactive Technologies Institute community will hear about the importance of communicating science. Our guest speaker will point out some reasons researchers should be involved in sharing their research. We will hear about the best practices for disseminating research to non-expert audiences and how to better interact with other stakeholders.
