*Geoscience Communication School*
Perugia, Italy, 10-16 April 2016

The school is organized by the International Centre for Theoretical Physics
(ICTP <http://www.ictp.it>) in collaboration with the Scuola Superiore di
Studi Avanzati (SISSA <http://www.sissa.it>), the Contaminated Land:
Applications In Real Environments (CL:AIRE <http://www.claire.co.uk/>) and
local organization provided by island of meetings (iom

Attending the school students will learn how to effectively convey
important research results to a public of both experts and laypeople.

Students will learn how:
- *to write scientific papers, *
*- to structure poster and talks for conference presentation, *
*- to write proposals at international level, *
*- to communicate science to general public, students, and policymakers*,
*- to communicate through art and laboratories*
*- to communicate through social networks and internet*

Also students will receive coaching from experienced researchers (Marie
Curie Alumni) and Euraxess experts on proposal and report drafting.
Laboratory material and representatives of Italian Space Agency and
European Space Agency (to be confirmed) will focus part of the school
specifically to the Geosciences.

Being involved in science communication activities will allow the students
to gain communication technical skills that will be useful in their wider
lives and will remind the students that science is an heritage that needs
to be shared as a part of our culture.

The school has the aim of offering overview and training of scientific
communication skills in all its forms. The school will treat communication
not only with an "educative aim" but also with a "scientific aim". The
lecturers will therefore not only present an overview of science
communication from a theoretical point of view, but also will offer
practical activities on abstract/paper writing and poster editing, on
proposal and report drafting, and on how to improve communication to
policymakers. All the lectures will be accompained by laboratories and
students will experience concrete activities: for example *each student
will present a poster at the beginning of the school and posters will be
corrected and improved at the end applying what learned during the school*;
at the end of the school students will try to provide accurate but concise
information about their science to the general public *recording a short
movie (famelab-like) which will be published into the facebook group *of
the school to get feedbacks.
