The early-career period is one of the most stressful stages for a researcher. To help navigate these crucial years, the Global Plant Council established the ECRi, including resources to help develop ECRs communication and dissemination skills.

Communicating science to the broad public is gaining more and more importance in the everyday life of researchers. In the age of fake-news and misinformation, making science accessible to everyone is becoming a shared responsibility not just of scientific organizations, but also of individual researchers and specialised science communicators.

Dissemination

EVENTS

The Global Plant Council hosts workshop devoted to improve the communication skills of ECRs.

The first workshop, held in June 2019, revolve on how to promote “your” science to the media and general public. This training was part of the Arabidopsis Conference in Wuhan, China (ICAR19)

Next workshop will be held the 30th June 2020 in Torino (Italy) as part of the Plant Biology Europe 2020 conference.

ECRi communication and dissemination activity

At Global Plant Council we want to help researchers with their writing skills while gaining some well-deserved visibility among plant science peers. We will provide with a platform (this website!) to publish online your own communications and dissemination texts.
