Two media training sessions were delivered throughout Anagennisi project. The first session was a joint event organised by University of Sheffield and Imperial College during the 3rd Plenary Anagennisi meeting in London. The senior communication officers from both institutes provided an extensive media training including a Q&A section as well as a short workshop on how to create short and simple descriptions of scientific research which can be published in newspapers and magazines. The presentation given by Ms Kristy Bowen and Mr Colin Smith, can be downloaded via the following link:

Anagennisi Project: 1st Media Training

 

Since the 1st media training session was successful and proved to be very useful for the researchers of Anagennisi consortium, it was decided to arrange a 2nd media training session. This time, the training focused on how to engage with social media and in particular how to interact with Twitter. Mrs Beck Lockwood, from University of Sheffield, provided an extensive media training including a Q&A section (see picture below). The presentation can be downloaded via the following link:
