Copenhagen, February 6, 2015

Thank you everybody for a very interesting afternoon. Below you will find a pdf with the lecture slides as well as a collection of links which may be of use. 

Good luck with your studies, research, networking and communication!

Some LinkedIn tips

Some Twitter tips


Download it here. Then use the search function to find some influencers in your field or hashtags related to your research subject. Start following 10–20 twitterers and extend your network slowly. Systematically remove those who are uninteresting, annoying or publishing too much. There is no point in following hundreds of people if you don’t want to become a specialised information traffic controller or influencer, alternatively work as a journalist or communication officer.

Other power tools: Hootsuite & Twitterfall.


Tweeting during conferences

Mr Scicomm = Kirk Englehardt

If you want a starting point for general science communication (hashtag #scicomm) your man is Kirk Englehardt from Georgia Tech. He knows what is going on, and presents summaries like this every week!

Scientia 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.

I specially recommend the Guides and articles part, for which a lot of material will be produced during the year ahead.

The Facebook Page offers interesting links every day.
