Researchers must be good communicators to be successful. It is essential to communicate complex science to a broad audience in a way that is accurate, clear, concise, and engaging. IEE offers resources to Penn State researchers who would like to improve their science communication skills.
The Science Communication Program offers events that explore communicating with:
- The media
- Funding agencies
- Researchers in other disciplines
Effective science communication can help researchers obtain funding, build collaborative relationships with other scientists, raise awareness of important scientific issues, and influence public policy and opinion.
