Get ready for STEAM 2017

STEAM summer school is ready for its second round on 3–12 July 2017. Join us for a 10-days intensive training in science communication Marathon (just outside Athens), Greece. STEAM provides training in science communication for university students, researchers, and educators and innovatively marries science and art in science communication practice.

The programme covers several aspects of science communication including journalism, arts, social media, management, policy, and theatre. It will be a fully immersive experience on science communication theory and practice but no previous communication experience is required. STEAM aims to train science communication ambassadors eager to engage with various sectors of the public back in their home countries.

You can take part in three different ways:
1. Apply for Your Grant by asking your institute/school/research centre to apply for ERASMUS+, Key Action 1 (Mobility for Individuals) funds (for members of all European countries). Deadline 2 February 2016.
