A seminar for scientists on ‘Communicating Food Science’

The FP7 MAITRE project will host the seminar ‘Communicating Food Science’ on 10-11 September in Berlin. The event is open to all food and nutrition scientists residing and/or working in a member state of the European Union and/or associated countries. PhD students are also eligible for any of the programmes. The deadline for applications is 31 July and the detailed programme will be available on the MAITRE website closer to the seminar date.

The MAITRE project holds a series of regular seminars aimed at equipping researchers with the tools which skilled media professionals use to address the public. The project’s tailor-made media training seminars go over the most important points researchers should be aware of when interacting with the media, thus helping their research communication activities.

Supported by professional journalists and journalistic content, MAITRE workshops are mainly characterised by hands-on practice for participants. As well as the training sessions themselves, MAITRE seminars foster debate, discussion and dialogue between participating researchers and the journalists hosting the workshops. All courses are designed exclusively for food and nutrition scientists and are tutored by leading and experienced journalists.
