The principles of effective science communication show that technology adoption is most successful for everyone when the public is engaged in the development and deployment process.
However, most technology developers and enablers have limited training in the art of effective communication and engagement with stakeholders, including investors, customers, policymakers, and the public.
Our SciComm Workshop gives trainees the opportunity to learn and practice effective science communication based on the values/engagement model.
Our ultimate goal is social design: where technology is designed and deployed with the entire social context in mind and everyone can benefit.
With multiple interactive sessions, Helixos can tailor our workshop to your specific needs as an organisation. The standard workshop includes two parts, conducted in-person or virtually:
