HUB20 – Storytelling in Science

HUB20 - Storytelling in Science

HUB20 – Storytelling in Science

Here’s a short report describing what took place at the event.

The human brain loves storytelling, and by weaving narrative into the way we talk about our science can help people to form an emotional connection and potentially perk their interest in your work. This approach, while certainly useful for communicating science to the general public, is useful in many other areas, from shaping research strategy, writing grant applications, or wow-ing an audience of peers. In this unseminar, we will work together to empower skills of storytelling, combining strong narratives with a real overview of your science and also having a lot of fun along the way.

  • Welcome and introduction (10 mins)
  • Ice-breaker (15 mins) (any ideas? Christmassy one?)
  • Talks (20 mins) (Eva and one other…)
  • Interviews: telling your science story (30 mins)
  • Creating analogies (30 mins)
  • Final words
  • To Christmas Market (ca. 20:15)
