We need to talk?!
We support you in communicating your research in an understandable way!

Successful Science Communication

Science communication plays an increasingly important role in the everyday lives of researchers and the awarding of third-party funding.
Successful science communication can help to create a deeper understanding of science and research among the public and thus strengthen citizens' trust in science. The aim is no longer simply to provide information, but increasingly also to encourage dialog and the participation of people in scientific issues and solutions. We are happy to support early-career researchers with our broad range of qualification and consulting services.

Our qualification offer

The Argelander Program for Early-Career Researchers offers a comprehensive qualification program in the field of science communication within the framework of Doctorate plus and Postdoc plus. Our courses are offered in three different levels of competence in order to target your experience and interests:


Workshops at this competence level provide you with basic insights and fundamental knowledge on science communication.


Deepen your knowledge and acquire competencies in specific fields or tools of science communication.


Have you received a media request and want to prepare specifically for the interview? We put you in touch with a qualified coach for a 1:1 training session.
