Springer Workshop in Tokyo and Melbourne for Science Communicators

Updated: Nov 9

Dear ASPAC Family, Our sister network ECSITE, sent us an opportunity for ASPAC science communicators. ECSITE's partner, Springer Nature are delivering (FREE) in-person workshops on science communication in different locations in the world, and two of them will take place in the following cities:

  • Tokyo, Japan: 11 November

  • Melbourne, Australia: 30 November

More information: These one-day skill-building sessions aimed at science communicators will be delivered by Springer Nature, as part of the GlobalSCAPE consortium, in six different locations around the world: Spain, South Africa, Australia, India, Colombia, Japan. Five topics relevant to science communicators from all background will be explored through a variety of formats including interactive exercises:

  • Sourcing your stories

  • Understanding your audience

  • Effective writing strategies

  • Preparing your press release

  • Maximising external promotion

More information about the workshops content can be found on the GlobalSCAPE website. The session in Tokyo, Japan will take place on Friday 11 November 8:45 to 5:30 pm at the Nihonbashi life science hub and the one in Melbourne, Australia will take place on Wednesday 30 November 9 am to 5:40 pm at RMIT University. These workshops are free of charge, but participants are expected to cover their own travel, accommodation or subsistence expenses. However, GlobalSCAPE can offer financial support to a selected number of participants through its Mobility Scheme which can reimbursed up to €750 to cover travel, accommodation and subsistence expenses. Please note that the deadline for the application for the GRANT for the Japan workshop was Oct 11 and the letter from ECSITE was only sent to me Oct. 18. However, the deadline for financial support application for the Melbourne workshop is Oct. 23. Please have your CEO/Director know if you are applying for this. I have attached here two invitation letters for your reference. Thank you.
