13:45 15:30 8th Science Cafe (Format: round table)
Pre-, during and post the Science Café, the YSS-OC wants to engage you on forging and fostering accurate and clear (scientific) communication from our industry. We will be looking at it from 2 angles:
External = to the community we are serving, e.g. via social media … a community relying on us and that may not be fully on board with the value, details or granularity of our (scientific) communication… with re- or misinterpreting of our message, or potentially being misled.
Internal = In the lab and with our stakeholders, within and across teams and/or organisations. The value that accurate, open and timely communication can bring to projects, individuals and teams.
The YSS-OC will prepare a pre-meeting survey to give food-for-thought for a dynamic roundtable panel discussion during our Science Café
15:30 16:00 Coffee break
