Grants for STEAM Summer School in Science Communication

Registration to the third international STEAM Summer School in Science Communication is now open.

See: http://www.steamsummerschool.eu/course/

The summer school is a 10-day intensive course in July which covers a wide-range of science communication topics, including journalism, social media, policy, management, arts, and performance. What makes it unique is the combination of the Arts with STEM subjects for creative communication approaches. The course will be comprehensive and no previous experience is required.

This year the school will be hosted at the University of Malta and will be a fantastic
opportunity to hear from international experts and mix with science communication
enthusiasts from around the world. Participants will be able to explore ways to
engage various public groups with research and will have a chance to improve
writing, speaking and other transferable skills for career development. Through the course, students will also organise and enjoy our social events which include science theatre, stand-up comedy and film. Watch our promo video to see more – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdUqzzXd3aQ

There are three grant options available to attend the school which will cover
registration fees, accommodation and funds towards travel. These include our
institutional grant, an international grant and those who apply through ERASMUS+
Mobility. More information about how to apply for each of these grants can be
