CCBIO is happy to be inviting you to a seminar in scientific writing and communication, April 12-15 2021 (4 half days, every day from 12.00 to 15.45). The seminar is open for all (requires registration). 

The course is part of the CCBIO/INTPART program, where students’ education and exchange is promoted through collaboration between CCBIO and the Boston based Harvard Medical School and Harvard Kennedy School. Elisabeth Wik is coordinating the program. This seminar/course in scientific writing was first run in December 2017 (see article about the first course), and again in May 2019, and digitally for the first time in June 2020. The course is also a part of CCBIO's Research School, with ID CCBIO908.

Media Advisor Marion Solheim will be adding a lecture on science presentation, showing how to make a presentation stick - in a good way. 

There is something to learn for all of us! We strongly encourage students at all levels, including postdocs, to prioritize this and attend! Senior staff is also very welcome. The seminar is also open to national and international visitors, and is free of charge.
