In our industry, scholarly authors write for their peers, using terms and techniques appropriate for their audience. But their results are also often of interest to a broader audience, particularly findings that impact on everyday lives. So how can we explain complex concepts to a lay audience? Do the filters that exist in modern media channels distort messages and undermine the trust that the public might have in science and academia? What approaches can be deployed to stop this happening?

Who should attend

Those whose role involves communicating academic research to a lay audience including press officers, communications specialists, public engagement teams, researchers.
