Third PASIFIC Workshop in Warsaw: Communication of Research Results to General Public

Following two online PASIFIC Fellowship Programme workshops in November 2022 and early March 2023, the third of our PASIFIC workshops took place on the 22nd and 23rd of March at Staszic Palace in Warsaw.

The event was organized by the Polish Academy of Sciences together with Pro Science, one of the main specialist PR agency in Poland, targeted at cooperation with scientific, R&D and educational communities.

In order to ensure an individual approach and accomplish the workshop goals, the training activities were carried out in two groups: on the 22nd and 23rd of March.

The meeting was opened by the PASIFIC Programme Manager Bogna Hryniszyn accompanied by Natalia Osica, CEO of Pro Science, and Michał Proszowski, Account Director of Pro Science, who conducted the training.

About the workshop

At the workshop, the participants were lectured on the idea of sharing scientific knowledge and communication with the media. To improve efficiency, all attendees had an opportunity to test their skills and apply newly acquired knowledge.

The main focus was put on exercises with camera, introducing to public speaking in front of the general audience. Participants had the opportunity to practice techniques and methods useful for creating a speech, adapt the type of speech to suit communication purposes and build up the image on stage.

The first day of  an intensive training over, the Fellows and the PASIFIC team members took a walk at Krakowskie Przedmieście and sat down for the networking dinner at the MOMU Restaurant.  

The WORKSHOP provided Fellows with an opportunity to gain knowledge shared by top specialists working to foster dialogue between science, business and society. There was also an excellent networking event to build new relations and sustain those established previously.

We are grateful to all attendees who made our workshop a successful event.

Please note that this is the third in the series of workshops to be organized within the PASIFIC Fellowship Programme. Please visit our website and follow our social media for future announcements.
