A TRAIN-ERS network meeting took place on 27th March 2017 in Barcelona. This was followed by 2 days of training for ESRs on communication and presentation skills and public engagement and scientific dissemination.
The network meeting was a great success with all the ESR’s showing great progress and engagement with their projects. It was also provided ESRs with valuable feedback from our network of experts and the opportunity to interact informally to share knowledge and build relationships.
The communications training provided ESR’s with personal feedback on how to improve their presentations and presentation style and how to communicate effectively. ESR’s also learned about the importance of public engagement and the different channels for communicating their research. All in all it was a productive, educational and enjoyable 3 days and
