The Speaking Science initiative was established in 2008 by science journalist Seán Duke to help scientists at all stages of their careers, and press officers in academia and industry to achieve their science communication goals.
The overarching idea behind the initiative is to help scientists learn how to better communicate with the public and other key audiences, without the use of scientific jargon and terminology that is such a turn off for so many people.
The facilitator, Seán Duke, has provided communication training for groups at University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, NUI Maynooth, NUI Galway, Dublin City University, The Radiological Protection Institute of Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, NovaUCD and the TCD-UCD Innovation Academy.
Speaking Science is suitable for scientists working towards a PhD, post-docs, early career researchers, senior research scientists, scientists working in industry, and communication professionals with a limited background in science.
