You are working on solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. But does the world know?
Only by communicating your science effectively, will people and organizations truly value your work.
We are two researchers that had to learn to communicate our science on our own. Our mission is to train you with the required skills and knowledge to make your science accessible for the betterment of society, and in doing so, restore trust in the scientific process.
The Let Science Connect team champions knowledge transformation towards a vision of science that is digestible and community-oriented, by investing in people and their science.
