The AHRC are running a media training session for their researchers funded through the Science in Culture Theme on 26th November.

The aim of the session is to build confidence to better understand and engage with journalists. The media training will be all-day event, covering how to work with your press office, tips for tailoring messages to non-academic audiences, identifying key messages, and involve media interview practice for radio.

These media training sessions are aimed at both principle investigators and co-investigators, perhaps people who have had some, experience in dealing with the media but would like to develop these skills or have not yet had much experience. We are organising under themes and it is easier to have a discussion on research of a similar topic. You do not have to be formally assigned to the theme but you research should be broadly aligned. Any questions about the themed session please email our Communications Manager, Danielle d.moore-chick@ahrc.ac.uk.

The AHRC will pay for the full cost of the course, but participants will have to pay their own travel.

Spaces are very limited. Places will be allocated on first-come-first served basis. To hold a place please email events@ahrc.ac.uk with the following details with a subject line of ‘Media training’.
