Media courses for researchers: Autumn programme 2022

The media, whether on television or on social media, have their own rules. With our experts, you will learn how to deal with them professionally.

Scientists are used to asking themselves questions. But when they are in the public eye, their role changes. Media, politics and society then expect comprehensible explanations and clear answers. Researchers find themselves walking the fine line between concise communication and inadmissible simplification.

In the SNSF course programme, you practise making a strong media appearance with experienced experts. Be it in front of the TV camera or the radio microphone, be it in the print media, on social media or during video interviews and video conferences. You develop simple and concise language that generates interest and gets to the heart of your research.

Concise posts for social media

In the one-day workshop, you will acquire the know-how to assess the quality of your own as well as other people's content. You will be equipped with the tools you need for your own strategies and forms of presentation in the new media. The two dates for autumn are:

  • 7 October 2022 (in French)
  • 2 December 2022 (in German)

French media training for female researchers

The SNSF would particularly like to encourage women to engage in science communication. That is why we also offer media training courses exclusively for female researchers. The course shows you how to use strong arguments and be persuasive in order to increase your visibility in a media world that continues to be dominated by men. There are still places available in the French-language media training course for women on 2 December 2022.

Further courses in German and French can be found on our website – register now, places are limited.
