Welcome to the largest Nordic conference for science communication practioners – the Forum for Science Communication, (Forum för forskningskommunikation, FFF 2020) in Gothenburg!
This year’s theme is “From Vision to Reality”. The morning is forward-looking and analytical, while the afternoon is devoted to workshops with concrete tips and tools.
Listen to and discuss with Hanna Brogren, CEO of the Swedish Communication Association, Jannike Tillå, Head of Communications at the Swedish Internet Foundation, and David J.T. Sumpter and Katrin Uba, researchers from Uppsala University. They will be talking about: the future role of communicators, the effects of environmental activism e.g. Greta Thunberg, the internet habits of Swedish people and what happens when researchers start to care about what people really care about!
At FFF 2020, we will place special emphasis on workshops that focus on science communication skills. We have invited communication professionals who will pass on their tips and share their experience of: create infographics, podcasts, citizen science, audio-visual press releases and other useful knowhow. Choose the sessions that interest you!
The day concludes with the presentation of the 2019 IgNobel prize by its founder, Marc Abrahams. The prize honours “achievements that make people laugh, then think”. This is followed by Marcus du Sautoy, Simonyi Professor of Public Understanding of Science from University of Oxford, who will be talking about maths for everyone.
We hope to see you there!
