Geoscience Communication School
Perugia, Italy, 10-16 April 2016

The school is organized by the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP in collaboration with the Scuola Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA, the Contaminated Land: Applications In Real Environments (CL:AIRE and local organization provided by island of meetings (iom

Attending the school students will learn how to effectively convey important research results to a public of both experts and laypeople.

Students will learn how:
- to write scientific papers,
- to structure poster and talks for conference presentation,
- to write proposals at international level,
- to communicate science to general public, students, and policymakers,
- to communicate through art and laboratories
- to communicate through social networks and internet

Also students will receive coaching from experienced researchers (Marie Curie Alumni) and Euraxess experts on proposal and report drafting. Laboratory material and representatives of Italian Space Agency and European Space Agency (to be confirmed) will focus part of the school specifically to the Geosciences.

Being involved in science communication activities will allow the students to gain communication technical skills that will be useful in their wider lives and will remind the students that science is an heritage that needs to be shared as a part of our culture.

The school has the aim of offering overview and training of scientific communication skills in all its forms. The school will treat communication not only with an "educative aim" but also with a "scientific aim". The lecturers will therefore not only present an overview of science communication from a theoretical point of view, but also will offer practical activities on abstract/paper writing and poster editing, on proposal and report drafting, and on how to improve communication to policymakers. All the lectures will be accompained by laboratories and students will experience concrete activities: for example each student will present a poster at the beginning of the school and posters will be corrected and improved at the end applying what learned during the school; at the end of the school students will try to provide accurate but concise information about their science to the general public recording a short movie (famelab-like) which will be published into the facebook group of the school to get feedbacks.
