The University of Glasgow proposes this year to host the Guild PGR Summer School in 2021 as an entirely online event, with no face-to-face activities. 

The overarching theme for the week would be research communication, including

•             Communicating research to diverse audiences, non-academic audiences

•             Communication within a multidisciplinary team

•             Communicating with external stakeholders

•             Communicating with the media

Participants will be encouraged to reflect on research communication in their own PhDs, and to develop/enhance their skills in this area via group work, workshops, and a variety of experiential activities.  Putting the knowledge and skills gained throughout the week into practice, participants will work together to eventually produce an online publication on research communication, which would be available to all PhD students. 


The cost is 300 EUR.
