June 7-10, 2021, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Brescia

What communication of scientific research is
The training in communication of scientific research (CSR) is an interdisciplinary postgraduate offering dedicated to young scholars, who work in public or private research institutes, and belong to the international academic community. This teaching program does not consist in communication of science for the general public, but on written and oral communic ation for and among scientists.

To whom it is addressed
The CSR program is especially addressed to PhD students and post-doctoral fellows drawn from the natural, the social, and the human sciences. It does not depend on the field of study, as it is focused on the tools necessary to communicate our research, rather than on its content.

CSR training characteristics
The CSR education provides theoretical and practical instructions on why and for whom we communicate our research within the international academic community, in addition to how.
This theoretical and practical approach allows the participants to understand the content while they apply them, through the analysis in class of written and oral works prepared by the participants.
The CSR training is centred on the relationship among, across and beyond cultures and disciplines.

Program of the course
The CSR course consist s in 20 hours in 4 days , with lessons of 5 hours each. 
Theoretical lectures present basic not ions on the key terms of communication of scientific research (first day), necessary to introduce the participants to the construction of written (second day) and oral (third day ) text 
Theory and practice go together in CSR training. We will apply the theoretical notes especially during the second and fourth lectures, in a collective analysis in class of participants written second day and oral fourth day texts.
