Media training courses are aimed at interested researchers in Switzerland who would like to improve their skills in dealing with the media. Academic researchers need to master the craft of writing non-scientific texts for a large number of purposes, such as adapting a research topic for the general public, preparing content for a website or writing press releases. These communication courses are held in German and French. Due to a lack of demand, the English media training will not be continued beyond 2016.
The SNSF supports these courses in partnership with the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) and the Mercator Foundation Switzerland.
