Solna, 21 Juni 2017

Hi everybody,

Every June, I look forward to meet the new Amgen Scholars group and—as always–it was great to spend an afternoon together. Hopefully, your projects are proceeding according to plan.

Feedback
Below are some links and references which you can find useful (and perhaps entertaining) as well as suggestions for your exploration of our somewhat peculiar country.

Excursion
I will probably join you at one of the summer excursions. If you have any questions about communication, there’ll be time to discuss them in person then.

Presentation & poster workshop + final presentations
Feel free to send me presentations and poster drafts in preparation for the workshop on August 7. I hope to attend at least one of the presentation days, August 10 or 11.

Good luck, and bear in mind what the Amgen Scholars student Leonidas Georgiou wrote in an e-mail to me: ”Lets face it: badly communicated science is boring and a big component of doing science is motivation; we can’t expect to motivate people without good communication skills!”

Cześć!
It was great meeting you all at the Innovation Forum event University and Industry: we speak different languages but say the same thing.

Please feel free to get in touch for questions and suggestions – I believe that Poland has a very strong future in science and tech due to your amazing human resources.

/Best,

Crastina

I currently put a lot of effort in Crastina—a networking platform for the exchange of knowledge, skills, experience and opinion regarding scientific communication and science dissemination. The primary target group is early career scientists, but here you can find stuff which is useful for everybody with an interest for communication. (The name comes from Scientia Crastina, Latin for ‘The Science of Tomorrow’)

There are several ways to engage in the Crastina network activities – please get in touch if you’re interested.

Hej, alla Amgen-studenter!

Tempus fugit — time flies — and in just a couple of weeks you will need to wrap up your summer project. I hope that the biomolecules and cells are behaving in your tubes and dishes and that you are getting some data (soon you will probably identify with the guys in this video). Just don’t worry too much – you will sort it out in the end, just like your Amgen colleagues have done through the years.

Below you will find a pdf with the lecture slides, as well as a collection of links which I hope you will find useful.

You can email me anytime for feedback on your PPt slides or poster design – but remember to give me a couple of days to reply.

PS 1 I look forward to do our viking Odyssey to Björkö together with you. (Here’s a classic Icelandic viking western to get in the mood!)

PS 2 Don’t forget to like the Crastina Facebook Page; we try to present really useful and/or inspiring links every day!

Mr Scicomm = Kirk Englehardt

If you want a starting point for general science communication (hashtag #scicomm) your man is Kirk Englehardt from University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. He knows what is going on, and regularily presents summaries like this.

Crastina

My current pet project is Crastina (from Scientia Crastina, Latin for ‘The Science of Tomorrow’)—a networking platform for the exchange of knowledge, skills, experience and opinion regarding scientific communication and science dissemination. The primary target group is early career scientists, but here you can find stuff which is useful for everybody with an interest for communication. Read more.

Hi, biomed students!

olle_bergmanI know that you are having a busy time studying Molecular Medicine now before Christmas, but here is some stuff to have a look at before my lecture on Wednesday. I promise I will put in some extra effort to make it worthwhile to attend!

Looking forward to see you all!
