The workshop helped our researchers improve their communication abilities in the context of media interviews. In the course, the participants learned how and why is that some scientific stories become a piece of important news. This helped the attendants to identify personal strategies and abilities that will let them communicate their scientific work in a more effective way in media interviews.

This course was conducted by Valentina Rodriguez, a science communication professional with extensive experience in science journalism and astronomy outreach for international observatories, and it was taught in a morning and afternoon 3 interactive and practical sessions, including a feedback session afterwards.
