Media courses for researchers: communicate skilfully

Whether on television or on Twitter, the media has its own set of rules. With advice from our experts, you can learn how to deal more professionally with the media.

Science is in the public spotlight. Politicians, the media and society expect researchers to explain, ask questions and provide answers.

Do you want your research to reach a wider public? What is you core message? In the SNSF courses, you practice making a strong media appearance with the help of our media experts. Be it facing the camera or speaking on the radio, or be it in print media, on social media or during video interviews and video conferences: you can learn how to use simple and precise language to present your research in a way that generates interest and gets to the heart of your research.
