Are you an Early Career Researcher (ECR) and want the world to know about your discoveries? What’s the story behind your research and how can you tell it in a compelling way? Fresh Science is a national competition designed to help you craft a compelling story to tell the community and media.
The program takes up-and-coming researchers with no media experience and helps you become a spokesperson for science. If selected you’ll take part in:
- a one day media and communication training course where you’ll meet and chat with journalists from TV, newspaper and radio, including doing some practice interviews
- a one day professional development program where you’ll met people from business and government; learn how to pitch and make a pitch; write a short profile and social media posts with the guidance of two professional science communicators
- attend an evening event at the local pub where you get to practice presenting your results in an understandable and fun way
As part of Fresh Science they will publish a short, media-ready profile on you and promote via social media channels. See previous stories
