DISSEMINATION & OUTREACH ACTIVITIES
The training activities go in parallel with building up a strong network between supervisors and fellows that will continue after completion of the project.
Moreover, every appointed ESR will be expected to acquire the expertise and managerial capacities required to render them appealing candidates for the subsequent enrolment either within the companies involved in TRANSMIT or within health institutions and Academia. All ESRs involved in the project will be expected to become trained in complementary skills such as science communication and network relationship building, including those with patients associations and families.
To understand the importance of both communication and dissemination within the H2020 programme, you can consult the EU Guide to Science Communication in the video down below.
DISSEMINATION ACTIVITY IN A HIGH SCHOOL (IN COLLABORATION WITH FUV)
MILAN, MAY 4, 2019
On May 4, 2019, during the third day of the course in Science Communication and Dissemination organised by FUV, our ESRs were involved in a dissemination activity in a high school as part of the practical sessions. It was both a training and dissemination activity at the same time. TRANSMITers were given the task of presenting a talk to a fourth class of the linguistic high school of the Virgilio Institute (Liceo Virgilio), located in Milan. Find out more here.
EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS’ NIGHT 2018
The European Researchers’ Night is an important dissemination event to bring science closer to people. This year it took place on September 28 in over 340 cities across Europe and beyond! Most of our ESRs attended the local event organised in their host country. You can see some pictures of the night and read some comments and impressions by our TRANSMITers here.
POSTER, EXHIBITION STAND AND VIDEO-INTERVIEWS
AT THE ABCAM CONFERENCE
The TRANSMIT ESRs, who unanimously decided to adopt the informal nickname of TRANSMITers, attended their first international conference all together: the Abcam Conference on Cancer and Metabolism, held at the Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge on June 25-27, 2018. During the conference, our TRANSMITers presented a collective poster in the dedicated session. To see some pictures click here.
Along with the poster, our TRANSMITers were also involved in dissemination activities. A TRANSMIT exhibition stand was set up for the entire duration of the conference: TRANSMITers were called to preside it during coffee breaks, giving their support and scientific know-how to present the project to the conference attendees. See some pictures here.
During the conference, TRANSMITers also had some brief video-interviews to introduce themselves (pair interviews either between ESR and PI or between ESRs). Watch the video-interviews here.
