To equip early career climate researchers with the skills to communicate their research with the media, TU Delft’s Climate Action Hub and KlimaatHelpdesk are jointly hosting a media outreach training for PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers.

About this media outreach training

In this training, you will learn about how you can best convey your research and its implications with confidence to a wide media audience. You will engage and build your skills through hands-on case studies. This is also an opportunity to meet other early career researchers from a wide array of disciplines, as well as media professionals.

This training will be held in early fall, at TU Delft | The Hague – exact date to be determined. The training will be free of charge. We welcome PhD candidates and postdoctoral climate researchers from all domains (sciences, social sciences, and humanities), affiliated with a Dutch university or research institute to express their interests to us. Depending on the interest of the applicants, the training will be focused on Dutch (-speaking) and/or international media.
