Wissenswert – Science goes City, 26 Oct 2019

GöttingenCampusThis opportunity is for all Postdocs, PhD students and researchers across the Campus in all disciplines whether you speak German or English.

How can you share your wonder for science?  How can you make others realise how important and relevant research is?  How can you help to address common misconceptions? One of the most reliable and convincing ways to communicate science is by meeting people individually and simply chatting with them, understanding their viewpoint and sharing your enthusiasm. These communication skills are important not just for science communication but also for interviews, teaching, being a leader in research and getting funding.


Here is an opportunity to practise those very skills at our interactive science event!

When: Saturday 26 October

Why: Wissenswert – Science goes City University and Campus team up with ProCity, to promote science in the centre of Göttingen.  Science will be showcased across Göttingen at a number of special events involving scientists

Where is our event: in a marquee next to the Gänseliesel
