About the workshop

In this workshop, you will hear about why and how scientific storytelling is useful for you as a researcher. Through two exercises, you will learn methods to distill your main research theme and transport it, in a concise way, to various audiences.

For whom is this workshop?

This workshop is concentrating on the basic skills of scientific storytelling and therefore is ideal for PhD students and early postdocs.


Anja Smykowski is a former researcher, scientific publisher, grant writer and storyteller. She is using storytelling techniques derived from screenwriting to transport scientific content. After all, science is not only about facts, but also about how you combine these facts to make sense.
