To get a professional message bank in a concrete research project we recommend the advanced course - step two.

PM2 Research Communication, Step2 - Advanced 2HP

This is an advanced course in communicating research to non experts. This time you will prepare your communication messages beforehand with help from the course leader, who has been working as a research coach for 25 years. We repeat shortly the theory from step 1, so the rest of the course can focus on practical training, analysis and new chances to be successful in your communication. We recommend that you have attended step 1 and hope you have some concrete project ending, so you will be able to use the work we do in real life.
